PrimeGrid — проект поиска простых чисел использующихся в криптографии.
PrimeGrid's primary goal is to bring the excitement of prime finding to the "everyday" computer user.
PrimeGrid's secondary goal is to provide relevant educational materials about primes.
Additionally, we wish to contribute to the field of mathematics.
Lastly, primes play a central role in the cryptographic systems which are used for computer security. Through the study of prime numbers it can be shown how much processing is required to crack an encryption code and thus to determine whether current security schemes are sufficiently secure.
