Class CryptoByteArrayArithmetic

java.lang.Object
  extended by net.rim.device.api.crypto.CryptoByteArrayArithmetic

public class CryptoByteArrayArithmetic
extends Object

Modular arithmetic on large unsigned integers. Integers are repesented as byte arrays with the most significant byte at position 0 in the array, or position offset if offset is specified. The arrays can be up to 256 bytes long.

When possible, methods that can work with a modulus that is a power of two are provided. In this case, the modulus will be 2log2modulus, where log2modulus is the integer representing log2 of the modulus that will be used in the calculations.

Each arithmetic method also has a version which allows an offset into each array to be specified, as well as the length in bytes of the integer stored in the array. In this case, the integer operated on will be the integer in the array that begins at byte offset and continues for length bytes.

dividendOffset - The offset into dividend, where the first byte of the integer is located.
dividendLength - The length of the integer in dividend.
divisor - The array containing the integer which is the divisor.
divisorOffset - The offset into divisor, where the first byte of the integer is located.
divisorLength - The length of the integer in divisor.
quotient - The output array which will contain the quotient of dividend / divisor.
quotientOffset - The offset into quotient, where the first byte of the integer will be.
quotientLength - The length of the integer in quotient. Must be >= dividendLength.
