A note on López-Dahab coordinates

Tanja Lange

Abstract: López-Dahab coordinates are usually the system of choice for implementations of elliptic curves over binary fields. We give new formulas for doubling which need one squaring less and one more addition. This leads to a speed-up for binary fields in polynomial basis representation.

Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / elliptic curves, coordinate system, fast implementation
