[][src]Struct curve25519_dalek::edwards::EdwardsBasepointTable

pub struct EdwardsBasepointTable(pub(crate) [LookupTable<AffineNielsPoint>; 32]);

A precomputed table of multiples of a basepoint, for accelerating fixed-base scalar multiplication. One table, for the Ed25519 basepoint, is provided in the constants module.

The basepoint tables are reasonably large (30KB), so they should probably be boxed.

Methods

impl EdwardsBasepointTable[src]

fn basepoint_mul(&self, scalar: &Scalar) -> EdwardsPoint[src]

The computation uses Pippeneger's algorithm, as described on page 13 of the Ed25519 paper. Write the scalar \(a\) in radix \(16\) with coefficients in \([-8,8)\), i.e., $$ a = a_0 + a_1 16^1 + \cdots + a_{63} 16^{63}, $$ with \(-8 \leq a_i < 8\), \(-8 \leq a_{63} \leq 8\). Then $$ a B = a_0 B + a_1 16^1 B + \cdots + a_{63} 16^{63} B. $$ Grouping even and odd coefficients gives $$ \begin{aligned} a B = \quad a_0 16^0 B +& a_2 16^2 B + \cdots + a_{62} 16^{62} B \\ + a_1 16^1 B +& a_3 16^3 B + \cdots + a_{63} 16^{63} B \\ = \quad(a_0 16^0 B +& a_2 16^2 B + \cdots + a_{62} 16^{62} B) \\ + 16(a_1 16^0 B +& a_3 16^2 B + \cdots + a_{63} 16^{62} B). \\ \end{aligned} $$ For each \(i = 0 \ldots 31\), we create a lookup table of $$ [16^{2i} B, \ldots, 8\cdot16^{2i} B], $$ and use it to select \( x \cdot 16^{2i} \cdot B \) in constant time.

The radix-\(16\) representation requires that the scalar is bounded by \(2^{255}\), which is always the case.
