Pairing Lattices

Florian Hess

Abstract: We provide a convenient mathematical framework that essentially encompasses all known pairing functions based on the Tate pairing. We prove non-degeneracy and bounds on the lowest possible degree of these pairing functions and show how efficient endomorphisms can be used to achieve a further degree reduction.
