Hi All,

Does anyone know how to find the generator,g that is used for El Gamal encryption?

Thank You

Hi GwynforWeb,

No offense, but do I sound like I am joking???

If you have no wish to help, please do not pass sacarstic remarks.

Thank You

Your question suggest you want to determine the generator of a coded message and hence decode a message. We do not crack cyphers unless they are fun challenges.

Hi GwynforWeb,

I think you think too deeply.

I just need to know in details how to generate the generator, g which is used in the encryption and not the decryption.

This is for my research. I have been searching the web for a detailed guide but could not find any. All I could find are similar to the link that you have provided.

And FYI, EL Gamel encrypted cannot be decrypted if the encrypted was done using a strong prime number. (maybe you already know)

And if I really need to decrypt something, there is no need for me to do it myself. There are loads of ready made program available on the web for downloads.


No offense intended and thanks anyway for the link.

The link says the two most popular types of groups used in ElGamal are subgroups of Zp and groups defined over certain elliptic curves and also gives very explicit instructions on how to genarate an appropriate genertaor for Zp. What are you looking for? I can give further detail but I am not sure what you want.
