This paper extends and generalizes Huff's model. It presents fast explicit formulas for point addition and doubling on Huff curves. It also addresses the problem of the efficient evaluation of pairings over Huff curves. Remarkably, the formulas we obtain feature some useful properties, including completeness and independence of the curve parameters.
