  • (24 Feb 2017) Added test vectors for hardened derivation with leading zeros

  • (30 Apr 2013) Switched from multiplication by I<sub>L</sub> to addition of I<sub>L</sub> (faster, easier implementation)
  • (25 May 2013) Added test vectors
  • (15 Jan 2014) Rename keys with index ≥ 0x80000000 to hardened keys, and add explicit conversion functions.
