Developers on a system like this don't have to, and shouldn't, be developing a cryptographic algorithm at the level of the actual arithmetic. They should use a proven library or framework. Many problems come when a developer is trying to be cute and tries to "roll their own" security. No developer should be developing a cryptographic algorithm for a production system unless they are an expert and it's being peer reviewed.
*Symbian, the framework* was an engineering marvel for running low-powered devices in the early 2000s.
