Abstract: Modular arithmetic with prime moduli has been crucial in present day cryptography. The primes of Mersenne, Solinas, Crandall and the so called IKE-MODP have been extensively used in efficient implementations. In this paper we study the density of primes with binary signed representation involving a small number of non-zero $\pm 1$-digits.
