PipeMSM: Hardware Acceleration for Multi-Scalar Multiplication
Authors: Charles. F. XavierAbstract:
Multi-Scalar Multiplication (MSM) is a fundamental computational problem. Interest in this problem was recently prompted by its application to ZK-SNARKs, where it often turns out to be the main computational bottleneck.
In this paper we set forth a pipelined design for computing MSM. Our design is based on a novel algorithmic approach and hardware-specific optimizations. At the core, we rely on a modular multiplication technique which we deem to be of independent interest.
We implemented and tested our design on FPGA. We highlight the promise of optimized hardware over state-of-the-art GPU- based MSM solver in terms of speed and energy expenditure.
