  journal={IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems},
The architecture and the implementation of a high-performance scalable elliptic curve cryptography processor (ECP) are presented. The proposed ECP is able to support all five prime field elliptic curves recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The design takes advantage of the high-performance capabilities of the DSP48E slices available in Xilinx field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to achieve high speed and low hardware resource utilization. The proposed… CONTINUE READING
