Curious about the Suyama test
I understand that the Suyama test is used on Fermat number cofactors to see if they're prime.
What exactly is the Suyama test? How does it work? Is there an equivalent test for generalized Fermat number cofactors? What is the status of the cofactors of F25, F26, F27, F28... Based on the information in the link below, the status of these cofactors is unknown. Is that true? http://www.prothsearch.net/fermat.html

I tested the cofactor of F25, F26 and F27 with Prime95, and they are composite, but it is not "official" until it is tested on another hardware with another software.
