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.

Abstract. For counting points of Jacobians of genus 2 curves defined over large prime fields, the best known method is a variant of Schoof’s algorithm. We present several improvements on the algorithms described by Gaudry and Harley in 2000. In particular we rebuild the symmetry that had been broken by the use of Cantor’s division polynomials and design a faster division by 2 and a division by 3. Combined with the algorithm by Matsuo, Chao and Tsujii, our implementation can count the points on a Jacobian of size 164 bits within about one week on a PC. 1

Abstract. In 1986, D. V. Chudnovsky and G. V. Chudnovsky proposed to use formulae coming from Theta functions for the arithmetic in Jacobians of genus 2 curves. We follow this idea and derive fast formulae for the scalar multiplication in the Kummer surface associated to a genus 2 curve, using a Montgomery ladder. Our formulae can be used to design very efficient genus 2 cryptosystems that should be faster than elliptic curve cryptosystems in some hardware configurations.

Abstract. — We present a new method for constructing genus 2 curves over a finite field Fn with a given number of points on its Jacobian. This method has important applications in cryptography, where groups of prime order are used as the basis for discretelog based cryptosystems. Our algorithm provides an alternative to the traditional CM method for constructing genus 2 curves. For a quartic CM field K with primitive CM type, we compute the Igusa class polynomials modulo p for certain small primes p and then use the Chinese remainder theorem (CRT) and a bound on the denominators to construct the class polynomials. We also provide an algorithm for determining endomorphism rings of ordinary Jacobians of genus 2 curves over finite fields, generalizing the work of Kohel for elliptic curves. Résumé (Un algorithme fondé sur le théorème chinois pour construire des courbes de genre 2 sur des corps finis) Nous présentons une nouvelle méthode pour construire des courbes de genre 2 sur un corps fini Fn avec un nombre donné de points sur sa jacobienne. Cette méthode a des applications importantes en cryptographie, où des groupes d’ordre premier sont employés pour former des cryptosystèmes fondés sur le logarithme discret. Notre algorithme fournit une alternative à la méthode traditionnelle de multiplication complexe pour construire des courbes de genre 2. Pour un corps quartique K à multiplication complexe de type primitif, nous calculons les polynômes de classe d’Igusa modulo p pour certain petit premiers p et employons le théorème chinois et une borne sur les dénominateurs pour construire les polynômes de classe. Nous fournissons également un algorithme pour déterminer les anneaux d’endomorphismes des jacobiennes de courbes ordinaires de genre 2 sur des corps finis, généralisant le travail de Kohel pour les courbes elliptiques.

Abstract. We present an algorithm that, on input of a CMfield K, an integer k ≥ 1, and a prime r ≡ 1 mod k, constructs a qWeil number π ∈ OK corresponding to an ordinary, simple abelian variety A over the field F of q elements that has an Frational point of order r and embedding degree k with respect to r. We then discuss how CMmethods over K can be used to explicitly construct A. 1

We provide the first explicit construction of genus 2 curves over finite fields whose Jacobians are ordinary, have large primeorder subgroups, and have small embedding degree. Our algorithm is modeled on the CocksPinch method for constructing pairingfriendly elliptic curves [5], and works for arbitrary embedding degrees k and prime subgroup orders r. The resulting abelian surfaces are defined over prime fields Fq with q ≈ r 4. We also provide an algorithm for constructing genus 2 curves over prime fields Fq with ordinary Jacobians J having the property that J[r] ⊂ J(Fq) or J[r] ⊂ J(F q k) for any even k.

Abstract. We present probabilistic algorithms which, given a genus 2 curve C defined over a finite field and a quartic CM field K, determine whether the endomorphism ring of the Jacobian J of C is the full ring of integers in K. In particular, we present algorithms for computing the field of definition of, and the action of Frobenius on, the subgroups J[ℓ d] for prime powers ℓ d. We use these algorithms to create the first implementation of Eisenträger and Lauter’s algorithm for computing Igusa class polynomials via the Chinese Remainder Theorem [EL], and we demonstrate the algorithm for a few small examples. We observe that in practice the running time of the CRT algorithm is dominated not by the endomorphism ring computation but rather by the need to compute p 3 curves for many small primes p. 1.

Abstract. One can define class invariants for a quartic primitive CM field K as special values of certain Siegel (or Hilbert) modular functions at CM points corresponding to K. Such constructions were given in [DSG] and [Lau]. We provide explicit bounds on the primes appearing in the denominators of these algebraic numbers. This allows us, in particular, to construct Sunits in certain abelian extensions of a reflex field of K, where S is effectively determined by K, and to bound the primes appearing in the denominators of the Igusa class polynomials arising in the construction of genus 2 curves with CM, as conjectured in [Lau]. 1.

Abstract. For a complex abelian surface A with endomorphism ring isomorphic to the maximal order in a quartic CMfield K, the Igusa invariants j1(A), j2(A), j3(A) generate an unramified abelian extension of the reflex field of K. In this paper we give an explicit geometric description of the Galois action of the class group of this reflex field on j1(A), j2(A), j3(A). Our description can be expressed by maps between various Siegel modular varieties, and we can explicitly compute the action for ideals of small norm. We use the Galois action to modify the CRT method for computing Igusa class polynomials, and our run time analysis shows that this yields a significant improvement. Furthermore, we find cycles in isogeny graphs for abelian surfaces, thereby implying that the ‘isogeny volcano ’ algorithm to compute endomorphism rings of ordinary elliptic curves over finite fields does not have a straightforward generalization to computing endomorphism rings of abelian surfaces over finite fields. 1.

Abstract. We present a generalization to genus 2 of the probabilistic algorithm in Sutherland [28] for computing Hilbert class polynomials. The improvement over the algorithm presented in [5] for the genus 2 case, is that we do not need to find a curve in the isogeny class with endomorphism ring which is the maximal order: rather we present a probabilistic algorithm for “going up ” to a maximal curve (a curve with maximal endomorphism ring), once we find any curve in the right isogeny class. Then we use the structure of the Shimura class group and the computation of (ℓ, ℓ)isogenies to compute all isogenous maximal curves from an initial one. This article is an extended version of the version published at ANTS X. 1.
