In this paper, we propose a scalable word-based crypto-processor that performs modular multiplication based on modified Montgomery algorithm for finite fields GF(P) and GF(2m). The unified crypto-processor supports scalable keys of length up to 2048 bits for RSA and 512 bits for elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). Further extension of the key length can be done easily by enlarging the memory module or using the external memory resource. With the proposed parity prediction technique, our… CONTINUE READING
