A complete set of addition laws\\for incomplete Edwards curves
Daniel J. Bernstein and Tanja Lange
Abstract: Edwards curves were the first curves shown to have a complete addition law. However, the completeness of the addition law depends on the curve parameters and even a complete Edwards curve becomes incomplete over a quadratic field extension. This paper covers arbitrary Edwards curves and gives a set of two addition laws that for any pair of input points P1, P2 produce the sum P1+P2.
Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / Elliptic curves, Edwards curves, complete addition law, points at infinity.
