# Exponentiation

Compute the modular exponentiation of base^exponant using algorithms design to avoid side channels and timing measurement

Modulo need to be odd otherwise the normal fast modular exponentiation is used.

When used with integer-simple, this function is not different from expFast, and thus provide the same unstudied and dubious timing and side channels claims.

with GHC 7.10, the powModSecInteger is missing from integer-gmp (which is now integer-gmp2), so is has the same security as old ghc version.

Compute the modular exponentiation of base^exponant using the fastest algorithm without any consideration for hiding parameters.

Use this function when all the parameters are public,
otherwise `expSafe`

should be prefered.

# Inverse computing

inverse :: Integer -> Integer -> Maybe Integer #

`inverse`

computes the modular inverse as in *g^(-1) mod m*.

inverseCoprimes :: Integer -> Integer -> Integer #

Compute the modular inverse of two coprime numbers. This is equivalent to inverse except that the result is known to exists.

If the numbers are not defined as coprime, this function
will raise a `CoprimesAssertionError`
