Another Pairing Implementation in PARI
Keywords: Cryptography - Computational number theory
Scientific Description: Apip , Another Pairing Implementation in PARI, is a library for computing standard and optimised variants of most cryptographic pairings.
The following pairings are available: Weil, Tate, ate and twisted ate, optimised versions (à la Vercauteren–Hess) of ate and twisted ate for selected curve families.
The following methods to compute the Miller part are implemented: standard Miller double-and-add method, standard Miller using a non-adjacent form, Boxall et al. version, Boxall et al. version using a non-adjacent form.
The final exponentiation part can be computed using one of the following variants: naive exponentiation, interleaved method, Avanzi–Mihailescu's method, Kato et al.'s method, Scott et al.'s method.
Part of the library has been included into Pari/Gp proper.
Functional Description: APIP is a library for computing standard and optimised variants of most cryptographic pairings.
