Point Compression and Multiplication for Pairing Based Cryptography

Speaker: Steven Galbraith (Royal Hollaway, University of London)

Time: 4:00PM

Date: Wed 23rd April 2008

Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room


*Please note day and time*
The topic of this talk is elliptic curve cryptography.

I will discuss elliptic curve point compression in the context of pairing based cryptography. I will also present a method to speed up point multiplication in pairing friendly groups.

(This talk is part of the Algebra/Claude Shannon Institute series.)
