Higher-degree supersingular group actions

Mathilde Chenu and Benjamin Smith

Abstract: We investigate the isogeny graphs of supersingular elliptic curves over \(\mathbb{F}_{p^2}\) equipped with a \(d\)-isogeny to their Galois conjugate. These curves are interesting because they are, in a sense, a generalization of curves defined over \(\mathbb{F}_p\), and there is an action of the ideal class group of \(\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{-dp})\) on the isogeny graphs. We investigate constructive and destructive aspects of these graphs in isogeny-based cryptography, including generalizations of the CSIDH cryptosystem and the Delfs--Galbraith algorithm.
