Handling VERY Large Integers (512-bit +)

Recommended Posts

I'm writing a DSA library for which I need to generate very large primes (512-1024-bit). To generate such large primes I need perform a series of tests (Rabin-Miller) that will possibly make these numbers even greater. Now, I know the integer data type is directly depended on the server machine which can handle number way smaller than what I need.

Is there a trick or possibly an alternative way of dealing with such large numbers in PHP?
