Good day to you all
I am fascinated with Botan, and it is rated quite fast in different surveys
on the net.
However, coming from openssl and c background, a learning curve will be
quite steep for me.
As far as i see, OOP paradigm has a lot of pluses
For instance, operation overloading in Botan allows add EC points as normal
However, i didn't found an operation to multiply a point by a scalar
I openssl one could do EC_POINT_mul(group, R, a, Q, b) and have R = aP+bQ
(P - base point, R - result point, Q-some point, a,b - mpi's)
Is there something similar in Botan?
Thanks for your valuable time
