comment Is it ok to send part of digital signature if we have bandwidth constraints?
@RickyDemer Can I do something like take hash, take part of it, encrypt it and send to the receiver and receiver can verify it.

@RickyDemer Whether something like create a hash take a small part and sign it and send. The verifier can decrypt it and

@RickyDemer Why MAC is preferred? Since we can have public/private key work in this case.

Recreate the signature and check whether the part is equal.

comment How to specify last $t$ bits are only sent when a signature is sent?
@CodesInChaos Is it possible to send only a part of signature? Like 16 bits?

comment How can I solve congruence modulo N?
Values of $J_A$ and $e$ are known. I am using example from GQ signature scheme from the book Page 451 cacr.uwaterloo.ca/hac/about/chap11.pdf

comment Shadowed identity in cryptography
Using the same example from the text, when I took $modularpow(J,phi−s,n)$, I am getting the value as -126739. I have J=34579, phi= 419184, s=233875 and n=420491

comment Shadowed identity in cryptography
One last question. There is an equation in the text "$s_A=(J_A)^{−s}mod\ n$". How could I calculate that? Taking $(J_A)^{−s}$ and taking mod n?

@skillzeo I cant use this since it require computation at both parties and have to send messages between them many times

comment How key materials are generated in SSL V3 from master secret
The TLS 1.0 documentation says The cipher spec which is defined in this document which requires the most material is 3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA: it requires 2 x 24 byte keys, 2 x 20 byte MAC secrets, and 2 x 8 byte IVs, for a total of 104 bytes of key material. How they arrived at the key size of 24 byte for 3DES. A little search on net gives 3DES key size as 168, 112 or 56 bits

comment What is the purpose of four different secrets shared by client and server in SSL/TLS?
why we have server_write_key and client_write_key?

comment Basic explanation of Elliptic Curve Cryptography?
@D.W. I have a basic understanding of Cryptography being a compsci undergrad. Don't know much about the underlying theoretical buildup. I want to know more from a practical view. A simplified theoretical view is highly desirable, since most text books look this from a high level view.
