Hardware Acceleration of the Tate Pairing in Characteristic Three

  title={Hardware Acceleration of the Tate Pairing in Characteristic Three},
  author={Philipp Grabher and Dan Page},
Although identity based cryptography o ers many functional advantages over conventional public key alternatives, the computational costs are signi cantly greater. The core computational task is evaluation of a bilinear map, or pairing, over elliptic curves. In this paper we prototype and evaluate polynomial and normal basis eld arithmetic on an FPGA device and use it to construct a hardware accelerator for pairings over elds of characteristic three. The performance of our prototype improves… CONTINUE READING
