Ate pairing for $y^{2}=x^{5}-\alpha x$ in characteristic five

Ryuichi Harasawa, Yutaka Sueyoshi, and Aichi Kudo

Abstract: Recently, the authors proposed a method for computing the Tate pairing using a distortion map for $y^{2}=x^{5} -\alpha x$ ($\alpha = \pm2$) over finite fields of characteristic five. In this paper, we show the Ate pairing, an invariant of the Tate pairing, can be applied to this curve. This leads to about $50\%$ computational cost-saving over the Tate pairing.
