A Novel Elliptic Curve Cryptography Processor Using NoC Design

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) has been proposed by Miller and Koblitz in the mid 1980s. A flexible architecture for Elliptic Curve Point Multiplication (ECPM) with the help of Network on Chip (NoC) over GF(p) and GF(2m) is presented in this paper. ECPM is the basic operation of any elliptic curve cryptosystem and it is essential that it is implemented efficiently. Several implementations of ECPM have been introduced and one implementation with NoC design is suggested. Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) is a public key cryptography system which attractive primarily because of its shorter wordlengths compared to RSA implementations with the same level of security.
