Abstract

We are presenting two new inversion algorithms for binary extension and prime fields which are slightly modified versions of the Montgomery inverse algorithm. An hardware architecture implementing these algorithms is also introduced, in which the field elements are represented using a multi-word format. This feature allows a scalable and unified architecture which operates in a broad range of precision, which has advantages in elliptic curve cryptography.
