tate_bilinear_pairing
a library for calculating Tate bilinear pairing especially on super-singularelliptic curve E:y^2=x^3-x+1 in affine coordinates defined over a Galois Field GF(3^m)
Introduction
This package is a Python library for calculating Tate bilinear pairing,
especially on super-singular elliptic curve $E:y^2=x^3-x+1$ in affine
coordinates defined over a Galois Field $GF(3^m)$. The largest order of
$G_1$ is 911 bits.
This package is also for calculating the addition of two elements
in the elliptic curve group, and the addition of $k$ identical element
in the elliptic curve group.
The code of this package for computing the Tate bilinear pairing follows
the paper by Beuchat et al [3]. The code of this package for computing
the elliptic curve group operation follows the paper by Kerins et al [2].
This package is in PURE Python, working with Python 2.7 and 3.2.
This package computes one Tate bilinear pairing within 3.26 seconds
@ Intel Core2 L7500 CPU (1.60GHz) if the order of $G_1$ is 151 bits.
=================================================
What is Tate bilinear pairing
Generally speaking, The Tate bilinear pairing algorithm is a transformation
that takes two points on an elliptic curve and outputs a nonzero element
in the extension field $GF(3^{6m})$. The state-of-the-art way of computing
the Tate bilinear pairing is eta pairing, introduced by Barreto et al [4].
For more information, please refer to [1,2,3,4].
=================================================
Usage 1: calculating Tate bilinear pairing
Specify the order of G1 is of 151 bits:
>>> from tate_bilinear_pairing import eta
>>> eta.init(151)
Given two random numbers like this:
>>> import random
>>> a = random.randint(0,1000)
>>> b = random.randint(0,1000)
Computing two elements $[inf1, x1, y1]$, and $[inf2, x2, y2]$ in
the elliptic curve group:
>>> from tate_bilinear_pairing import ecc
>>> g = ecc.gen()
>>> inf1, x1, y1 = ecc.scalar_mult(a, g)
>>> inf2, x2, y2 = ecc.scalar_mult(b, g)
Tate bilinear pairing is done via:
>>> from tate_bilinear_pairing import eta
>>> t = eta.pairing(x1, y1, x2, y2)
=================================================
Usage 2: calculating the addition of two elements in the elliptic curve group
Given two elements $p1=[inf1, x1, y1]$, and $p2=[inf2, x2, y2]$ in the
elliptic curve group, the addition is done via:
>>> p1 = [inf1, x1, y1]
>>> p2 = [inf2, x2, y2]
>>> p3 = ecc.add(p1, p2)
=================================================
Usage 3: calculating the addition of $k$ identical elements
Given a non-negative integer $k$ and an group element $p1=[inf1, x1, y1]$,
$k \cdot p1$ is computed via:
>>> k = random.randint(0,1000)
>>> p3 = ecc.scalar_mult(k, p1)
