Title: Lambda Coordinates for Binary Elliptic Curves


Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) is a public-key cryptography based on elliptic curves over finite fields and can be used for encryption, digital signature and random-number generation. According to researches ECC can provide the same level of security using smaller keys than traditional cryptosystems such as RSA. With the benefit of using smaller keys, ECC can deliver faster encryption on smaller hardware.

Lambda-coordinates is a new system for representing points on elliptic curves which is developed for reducing the cost of scalar multiplication to provide important speedups which enable even faster cryptography.
