Building curves with arbitrary small MOV degree over finite prime fields

R. Dupont and A. Enge and F. Morain

Abstract: We investigate the possibility of building elliptic curves over finite prime fields having given small MOV-degrees. Using complex multiplication, we give many examples of such curves.

Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / elliptic curves, pairings, MOV degree, complex multiplication
