Cryptographic applications, such as RSA algorithm, ElGamal cryptography, elliptic curve cryptography, Rabin cryptosystem, Diffie -Hellmann key exchange algorithm, and the Digital Signature Standard, use modular exponentiation extensively. The performance of all these applications strongly depends on the efficient implementation of modular exponentiation and modular multiplication. Since 1984, when Montgomery first introduced a method to evaluate modular multiplications, many algorithmic modifications have been done for improving the efficiency of modular multiplication, but very less work has been done on the modular exponentiation to improve the efficiency. This research monograph addresses the question- how can the performance of modular exponentiation, which is the crucial operation of many public-key cryptographic techniques, be improved?
