byte arrays: in Java the sign of the integer is taken into account, but not in Go. This means
that in Java, when converting a bigint to or from a byte array, the most significant bit
indicates the sign of the integer. In Go this is not the case. This resulted in invalid
signatures being issued in the issuance protocol in two distinct ways, of which we test here
that they have been fixed. */

significant (sign) bit. We test that the Java implementation correctly removes the extraneous
