Diffie-Hellman Component Features

Diffie-Hellman key exchange (D-H) is a cryptographic protocol that allows two parties that have no prior knowledge of each other to jointly establish a shared secret key over an insecure communications channel. This key can then be used to encrypt subsequent communications using a symmetric key cipher.

Synonyms of Diffie-Hellman key exchange include:

  • Diffie-Hellman key agreement
  • Diffie-Hellman key establishment
  • Diffie-Hellman key negotiation
  • Exponential key exchange

Component Features:

  • Simple 2-step Method for Computing a Shared Secret
  • Safe prime generation. Generate new P and G values.
  • Ability to use Known Primes from RFC 2409 and RFC 3526 (Oakley and MODP groups)
