comment Is there any probabilistic version of RSA?
@ddddavidee: actually, the PKCS #1.5 signature method is determanistic, and is in common use. However, I would agree that any encryption padding will be nondetermanistic (to prevent someone from verifying a guess on the plaintext, if nothing else).

comment What is the use of Mersenne Primes in cryptography
Two issues with the cited random number paper: a) it doesn't actually talk about Mersenne primes, but numbers of a related form, and b) I don't believe that the random number generators cited are actually cryptographical (that is, indistinguishable from a truly random bit generator).
