The output of the Tate pairing on an elliptic curve over a nite eld is an element in the multiplicative group of an extension eld modulo a particular subgroup. One ordinarily powers this element to obtain a unique representative for the output coset, and performs any further necessary arithmetic in the extension eld. Rather than an obstruction, we show to the contrary that one can exploit this quotient group to eliminate the nal powering, to speed up exponentiations and to obtain a simple compression of pairing values which is useful during interactive identitybased cryptographic protocols. Speci cally we demonstrate that methods available for fast point multiplication on elliptic curves such as mixed addition, signed digit representations and Frobenius expansions, all transfer easily to the quotient group, and provide a signi cant improvement over the arithmetic of the extension eld.

Abstract—Cryptographic devices are vulnerable to fault injection attacks. All previous countermeasures against fault injection attacks based on error detecting codes assume that the attacker cannot simultaneously control the faultfree outputs of a deviceunderattack and error patterns. For advanced attackers who are able to control both of the above two aspects, traditional protections can be easily compromised. In this paper, we propose optimal algebraic manipulation detection (AMD) codes based on the nonlinear encoding functions and the random number generators. The proposed codes can provide a guaranteed high error detecting probability even if the attacker can fully control the faultfree outputs of a deviceunderattack as well as the error patterns. As a case study, we present the protection architectures based on AMD codes for multipliers in Galois fields used for the elliptic curve cryptography. The results show that the proposed architecture can provide a very low error masking probability at the cost of a reasonable area overhead. The protected multiplier has no latency penalty when the predictor is pipelined.

Abstract. In this paper, we study the bounded sumofdigits discrete logarithm problem in finite fields. Our results concern primarily with fields Fqn where nq − 1. The fields are called Kummer extensions of Fq. It is known that we can efficiently construct an element g with order greater than 2 n in the fields. Let Sq(•) be the function from integers to the sum of digits in their qary expansions. We first present an algorithm that given g e (0 ≤ e < q n) finds e in random polynomial time, provided that Sq(e) < n. We then show that the problem is solvable in random polynomial time for most of the exponent e with Sq(e) < 1.32n, by exploring an interesting connection between the discrete logarithm problem and the problem of list decoding of ReedSolomon codes, and applying the GuruswamiSudan algorithm. As a side result, we obtain a sharper lower bound on the number of congruent polynomials generated by linear factors than the one based on StothersMason ABCtheorem. We also prove that in the field Fqq−1, the bounded sumofdigits discrete logarithm with respect to g can be computed in random time O(f(w) log 4 (q q−1)), where f is a subexponential function and w is the bound on the qary sumofdigits of the exponent, hence the problem is fixed parameter tractable. These results are shown to be generalized to ArtinSchreier extension Fpp where p is a prime. Since every finite field has an extension of reasonable degree which is a Kummer extension, our result reveals an unexpected property of the discrete logarithm problem, namely, the bounded sumofdigits discrete logarithm problem in any given finite field becomes polynomial time solvable in certain low degree extensions. 1

Abstract—Cryptographic devices suffer from fault injection attacks. The security of cryptosystems protected by traditional error detecting codes rely on the assumption that the information bits and the error patterns are not both controllable by the attacker. For applications where the assumption is not valid, the security of systems protected by traditional error detecting codes can be easily compromised. In this paper, we present constructions for algebraic manipulation detection (AMD) codes based on the nonlinear encoding functions. For a (k, m, r) AMD code, a message contains three parts: kbit information data y, mbit random data x and rbit redundancy f(y, x). For any error e and information y, the fraction of x that masks the error e is less than 1. In this paper we describe lower and upper bounds on AMD codes and show that the presented constructions can generate optimal or close to optimal AMD codes in many cases. We presented efficient encoding and decoding methods for AMD codes minimizing the number of multipliers using the multivariate Horner scheme. The proposed codes can provide a guaranteed high error detecting probability even if both the information bits of the code and the nonzero error patterns are controllable by an attacker. These codes can be used for design of secure multipliers, secure memories or secure hardware implementing cryptography algorithms resistant to fault injection attacks.

Abstract—Gabidulin codes are the rankmetric analogs of ReedSolomon codes and have a major role in practical error control for network coding. This paper presents new encoding and decoding algorithms for Gabidulin codes based on lowcomplexity normal bases. In addition, a new decoding algorithm is proposed based on a transformdomain approach. Together, these represent the fastest known algorithms for encoding and decoding Gabidulin codes. I.

In this paper we introduce a new transformation method and a multiplication algorithm for multiplying the elements of the field GF(2k) expressed in a normal basis. The number of XOR gates for the proposed multiplication algorithm is fewer than that of the optimal normal basis multiplication, not taking into account the cost of forward and backward transformations. The algorithm is more suitable for applications in which tens or hundreds of field multiplications are performed before needing to transform the results back. 1
