Provable Prime Number Generator suitable for Cryptographic Applications

This module implements Ueli Maurer's algorithm for generating large provable
primes and secure parameters for public-key cryptosystems. The generated primes
are almost uniformly distributed over the set of primes of the specified
bitsize and expected time for generation is less than the time required for
generating a pseudo-prime of the same size with Miller-Rabin tests

Crypt::Primes is a pure perl implementation. It uses Math::Pari for multiple
precision integer arithmetic and number theoretic functions. Random numbers are
gathered with Crypt::Random, a perl interface to /dev/u?random devices found on
most modern Unix operating systems.
