Subject: Application for Summer Internship

Dear sir,

     I  am a pre-final  year undergraduate  student doing  Bachelor of
Technology  in  Electronics and  Communication  Engineering at  Indian
Institute of  Technology(IIT),Guwahati, one of  the premier institutes
for  Engineering and Applied  Sciences in  India. I  am looking  for a
challenging  opportunity  for  summer   internship  in  the  field  of
      1. Applied  Cryptography.
      2. Computer  Networks (security).
      3. VLSI Design.
for the period of May-July 2004 and  I am very keen to pursue the same
under your able guidance.

To consolidate  my knowledge in  my fields of  interest I have  done a
project in the field of VLSI design and Cryptography at Microprocessor
and Software  Group (MPSG) in  HCL Technologies Limited, India(details
in CV).The details of my other work experience are given in my CV.

I  have gone through your research  activities given on your homepage.
I would be very fortunate to  have  an  opportunity of  working  under
distinguished researcher such as you. Hence, I request you to consider
me for  training under your expert  guidance, for a suitable available
project in the above fields.

I  am fully  aware of  the  commitment and  perseverance required  for
internship and  believe that my  aptitude and motivation will  help me
successfully  face the challenge.  To give  you a  better sense  of my
qualifications I  am sending my  Curriculum Vitae, which  follows this
letter. Thanking you in anticipation.

     - The RSA accelerator is to  generate C = M exp e (mod n) for
       encryption and M = C exp d (mod n) for decryption.
     - Used in RSA Cryptography Standard (PKCS#1 v2.1).
     - Decryption done in  two ways :
        1.CRT (Chinese RemainderTheorem).
        2.Normal method of M = C exp d (mod n).

   Performance Requirements
     - The RSA Accelerator (1024  bits) should function properly
       at least at 20 megahertz.
     - Encryption/Decryption time for 1024 bit N should be 300ms.
     - Decryption time using CRT is 100 ms.
