A nonlinear cryptosystem based on elliptic curves *

  title={A nonlinear cryptosystem based on elliptic curves *},
  author={Joan-Josep Climent},
We propose a new system that is applicable to public key cryptography. The system is a variant of the Discrete Logarithm Problem (DLP) with the elements of a certain group, formed with points of an elliptic curve, and the elements of a certain finite field related to the curve. The nonlinear term refers to the coefficient that we use as the problem to solve because it is obtained with a nonlinear combination of two scalar elements chosen at random. Also, we expose the Diffie-Hellman key… CONTINUE READING
