A high speed processor for elliptic curve cryptography over NIST prime field

Abstract "Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC), as one of the public key cryptography systems, has been widely applied to many security applications. It is challenging to implement a scalar multiplication (SM) operation which has the highest computational complexity in ECC. In this study, we propose a hardware processor which achieves high speed and high security for ECC. We first present a three... » read more
