This paper describes the design of a fast software library for the computation of the optimal ate pairing on a Barreto–Naehrig elliptic curve. Our library is able to compute the optimal ate pairing over a 254-bit prime field Fp, in just 2.33 million of clock cycles on a single core of an Intel Core i7 2.8GHz processor, which implies that the pairing(More)
A ciphertext-policy attribute-based encryption protocol uses bilinear pairings to provide control access mechanisms, where the set of user's attributes is specified by means of a linear secret sharing scheme. In this paper we present the design of a software cryptographic library that achieves record timings for the computation of a 126-bit security level(More)
