Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) is widely used as an efficient mechanism to secure private data using public-key protocols. We focus on ECC over five standard prime fields recommended by the National Institute of Standard and Technology (with the corresponding prime sizes of 192, 224, 256, 384, and 521 bits) and propose a novel hardware processor that enables flexible security-performance tradeoffs. To enhance performance, our processor exploits parallelism by pipelining modular arithmetic… CONTINUE READING
