Charla: "Two is the fastest prime"

Auditorio DCC, tercer piso.

We present new arithmetic formulas for binary elliptic curves using the lambda point representation along with an efficient software implementation of the scalar multiplication over a binary GLS elliptic curve at the 127-bit security level. This talk also shows how the binary field arithmetic operations were optimized with vector instructions to achieve protected and unprotected scalar multiplication speed records on the Intel Sandy Bridge and Haswell platforms.


*La charla será en inglés.
