An Example of Application—Elliptic Curve Cryptography
1010608An Example of Application—Elliptic Curve CryptographyThis final chapter gives an example of finite-field application, namely, the implementation of the scalar product (point multiplication) over an elliptic curve. It is the basic computation primitive of elliptic curve cryptography. The definition of the corresponding operations depends on the particular field, but they always amount to combinations of arithmetic operations (add, subtract, multiply, square, and divide) over the chosen field, so that their hardware implementation can be carried on using the VHDL mod…
