Subtle correlations between the numbers the algorithm produced were being amplified by the simulation's calculations and skewing the results.
But Christopher Bradfield, a professor of oncology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and CEO of the Madison-based toxicogenomics service company Functional Biosciences, points out that new algorithms are only as good as their translation into clearer biologic understanding.
We now present it in some detail, since the method to find the area of coverage is also used in the reference fitting algorithm.
Other cryptographic algorithms currently validated by the CMVP are the Data Encryption Standard (DES), the Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES), the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA), the Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-1), and the Random Number Generator algorithm (RNG).
