Description

13 years ago
ECDSA signing (used by the server in SSL handshakes) can be sped up by optimizing the base point multiplication algorithms.  These can be optimized by precomputing and storing in the code before compile-time small multiples of the base point instead of needing to compute these multiples each point multiplication.

Bob, are these improvements still necessary after your improvements in bug #321350, or does that give sufficient performance?

This may become higher priority over time, but not today.
Of course, if a patch becomes available soon, it will be considered
pretty quickly.
