Architecture level Optimizations for Kummer based HECC on FPGAs

Gabriel Gallin and Turku Ozlum Celik and Arnaud Tisserand

Abstract: On the basis of a software implementation of Kummer based HECC over Fp presented in 2016, we propose new hardware architectures. Our main objectives are: definition of architecture parameters (type, size and number of units for arithmetic operations, memory and internal communications); architecture style optimization to exploit internal par-allelism. Several architectures have been designed and implemented on FPGAs for scalar multiplication acceleration in embedded systems. Our results show significant area reduction for similar computation time than best state of the art hardware implementations of curve based solutions.
