Solving ECDLP via List Decoding

Fangguo Zhang and Shengli Liu

Abstract: We provide a new approach to the elliptic curve discrete logarithm problem (ECDLP). First, we construct Elliptic Codes (EC codes) from the ECDLP. Then we propose an algorithm of finding the minimum weight codewords for algebraic geometry codes, especially for the elliptic code, via list decoding. Finally, with the minimum weight codewords, we show how to solve ECDLP. This work may provide a potential approach to speeding up the computation of ECDLP
