Pairing Implementation Revisited

Authors: Michael Scott


Pairing-based cryptography is now a mature science. However implementation of a pairing-based protocol can be challenging, as the efficient computation of a pairing is difficult, and the existing literature on implementation might not match with the requirements of a particular application. Furthermore developments in our understanding of the true security of pairings render much of the existing literature redundant. Here we take a fresh look and develop a simpler three-stage algorithm for calculating pairings, as they arise in real applications.
