Hello all,

I am taking a Cryptography class as part of my masters study. We are using Mathematica to handle the large numbers
that we work with.

My question is I need a 512 bit Prime number for one of the signature schemes we are working with. I know that when I command mathematica to do Prime[n] what it give me is the nth prime number.

Can anyone tell me how to get a prime number of a certain number of bits.

Thanks
Jason
