KaKaRoTo Speaks of ECDSA Algorithm - CFW Impossible
I have always wanted an explanation of the ECDSA algorithm
due to it's mathematical complexity. Anyone who knows anything about PS3 encryption and the hidden keys used to calculate the ECDSA know that it isn't an easy feat. PlayStation 3 developer KaKaRoTo
has tried to simplify the subject for us in order to gain some knowledge on the subject. Below is an extract, you can read the full article linked at the source below.
Please continue to read the bottom of his article if you are feeling to lazy to read.
To popular demand, I have decided to try and explain how the ECDSA algorithm works. I’ve been struggling a bit to understand it properly and while I found a lot of documentation about it, I haven’t really found any “ECDSA for newbies” anywhere. So I thought it would be good to explain in simple terms how it works so others can learn from my research. I have found some websites that explain the basic principles but nowhere near enough to actually understand it, others that explains things without any basics, making it incomprehensible, and others that go way too deep into the the mathematics behind it.
