Montgomery curves and the Montgomery ladder
Authors: Daniel J. Bernstein, Tanja LangeAbstract:
The Montgomery ladder is a remarkably simple method of computing scalar multiples of points on a broad class of elliptic curves. This article surveys a wide range of topics related to the Montgomery ladder, both from the historical perspective of Weierstrass curves and from the modern perspective of Edwards curves. New material includes a full proof of a complete constant-time ladder algorithm suitable for cryptographic applications.
