Elliptic curves have been intensively studied in number theory and algebraic geometry for over 100 years and there is an enormous amount of literature on the subject. To quote the mathematician Serge Lang: It is possible to write endlessly on elliptic curves. (This is not a threat.) Elliptic curves also figured prominently in the recent proof of Fermat's Last Theorem by Andrew Wiles. Originally pursued for purely aesthetic reasons, elliptic curves have recently been utilized in devising algorithms for factoring integers, primality proving, and in publickey cryptography. In this article, we aim to give the reader an introduction to elliptic curve cryptosystems, and to demonstrate why these systems provide relatively small block sizes, highspeed software and hardware implementations, and offer the highest strengthperkeybit of any known publickey scheme.
On the performance of hyperelliptic cryptosystems

In this paper we discuss various aspects of cryptosystems based on hyperelliptic curves. In particular we cover the implementation of the group law on such curves and how to generate suitable curves for use in cryptography. This paper presents a practical comparison between the performance of elliptic curve based digital signature schemes and schemes based on hyperelliptic curves. We conclude that, at present, hyperelliptic curves offer no performance advantage over elliptic curves.

We present an algorithm for computing the zeta function of an arbitrary hyperelliptic curve over a finite field Fq of characteristic 2, thereby extending the algorithm of Kedlaya for odd characteristic. For a genus g hyperelliptic curve defined over F2 n , the averagecase time complexity is O(g ) and the averagecase space complexity is O(g ), whereas the worstcase time and space complexities are O(g ) and ) respectively.

. This survey discusses algorithms and explicit calculations for curves of genus at least 2 and their Jacobians, mainly over number fields and finite fields. Miscellaneous examples and a list of possible future projects are given at the end. 1. Introduction An enormous number of people have performed an enormous number of computations on elliptic curves, as one can see from even a perfunctory glance at [29]. A few years ago, the same could not be said for curves of higher genus, even though the theory of such curves had been developed in detail. Now, however, polynomialtime algorithms and sometimes actual programs are available for solving a wide variety of problems associated with such curves. The genus 2 case especially is becoming accessible: in light of recent work, it seems reasonable to expect that within a few years, packages will be available for doing genus 2 computations analogous to the elliptic curve computations that are currently possible in PARI, MAGMA, SIMATH, apec...

We exhibit a quantum algorithm for determining the zeta function of a genus g curve over a finite field Fq, which is polynomial in g and log(q). This amounts to giving an algorithm to produce provably random elements of the class group of a curve, plus a recipe for recovering a Weil polynomial from enough of its cyclic resultants. The latter effectivizes a result of Fried in a restricted setting. 1
