@EllaRose for an autodidact :p
@EllaRose I noticed Destiny disappeared at some point. I hope you didn't throw it out completely. I know our designs were different, but I've still been working on an integer based variant and had an awesome breakthrough: I've devised a variant that offers a reduction from the GapSVP lattice problem, without resorting to anything over-complicated

No, I did not throw it out. I just merged it back into my regular crypto package, into a new sub package.
 
@EllaRose Would you be willing to chat with me about it again? I've been through some extreme hormone changes and am in a completely different mind space now that I have my medication fixed

This comment is in need for attention; it breaks the page rendering. crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/44974/…
Perhaps a moderator could move the formula part of it to the question, so that it can actually be read?

This has been fixed by the OP removing the comment; the problem is well-known there, also there
and there

I have a small doubt. In my workplace they use two servers say X and Y. X sends files(data) to Y. I was debugging an issue where X was unable to connect to Y. I exported the certificate of Y and placed it in keystore of X.
Which did not work. Then I got the Private key of Y and placed it in Keystore of X as PrivateKeyEntry
Then it started to work. I tried to check the internal implementation, It seems they are trying to sign with private key present in keystore.
I could not make sense why this would need a private key.
I googled and understood that. Encrypting with public key and receiver decrypting with private key is encryption.
and signing where the private key of sender is used to sign.
But what is the above case? Why would I get the private key of another server place it in my keystore and sign using it.
I do not have formal education in math or crypto so please correct me in case of my lack of understanding.
The both servers are local deployment so it might be possible that I did not understand the entire process completly
Thanks!
My manager was saying the certificate of Y should be enough. I was also equally perplexed when that was not the case.

@MickLH I have not worked on that in a while, I've been doing other things. If you have keybase I guess you can add me (I have invites if not)
