Efficient Implementation of Elliptic Curve Cryptosystems on the TI MSP 430x33x Family of Microcontrollers


This contribution describes a methodology used to efficiently implement elliptic curves (EC) over GF (p) on the 16-bit TI MSP430x33x family of low-cost microcontrollers. We show that it is possible to implement EC cryptosystems in highly constrained embedded systems and still obtain acceptable performance at low cost. We modified the EC point addition and… (More)
