Miller’s algorithm for computing pairings involves perform- ing multiplications between elements that belong to different finite fields. Namely, elements in the full extension field Fpk are multiplied by elements contained in proper subfields F pk/d , and by elements in the base field Fp . We show that significant speedups in pairing computations can be achieved by delaying these “mismatched” multiplications for an optimal number of iterations. Importantly, we show that our technique can be easily integrated into traditional pairing algorithms; implementers can exploit the computational savings herein by applying only minor changes to existing pairing code.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
