Elliptic Curves University of Bordeaux
In this course lecturewe will discuss the theory of elliptic curvesand how to use them incryptography.
> Applicants should: - Have completed, with good results, a Bachelor of science degree inMathematics or equivalent. - Have thorough proficiency in written and spoken English.
Exams take place in December.
> The course will be organized as follows: - In the first part wedescribe the group structure of an ellipticcurve defined over a finite fieldand how to derive cryptographicapplications from the corresponding discretelogarithm problem. - In the second part we introduce pairings on ellipticcurves andexplain how to construct more powerful cryptographic tools withthem.> The lectures will be illustrated by programming sessions usingPari/GP.> Bibliography: - Steven Galbraith, Mathematics ofPublic Key Cryptography, CambridgeUniversity Press (2012), in particular PartsII and V. - Andreas Enge, Elliptic curves and their applications tocryptography (an introduction), Springer, 1999.
> Lectures and programming sessions: - 48 course hours. - 120 hours of personal study.
