the cost of addition on elliptic curves. This paper presents new
explicit formulae for pairing implementation in Edwards coordinates.
We prove our method gives performances similar to those of Miller's
algorithm in Jacobian coordinates and is thus of cryptographic
interest when one chooses Edwards curve implementations of protocols
in elliptic curve cryptography. The method is faster than the recent
proposal of Das and Sarkar for computing pairings on supersingular
curves using Edwards coordinates.
