A Complete Divisor Class Halving Algorithm for Hyperelliptic Curve Cryptosystems of Genus Two
We deal with a divisor class halving algorithm on hyperelliptic curve cryptosystems (HECC), which can be used for scalar multiplication, instead of a doubling algorithm. It is not obvious how to construct a halving algorithm, due to the complicated addition formula of hyperelliptic curves. In this paper, we propose the first halving algorithm used for HECC of genus 2, which is as efficient as the previously known doubling algorithm. From the explicit formula of the doubling algorithm, we can generate some equations whose common solutions contain the halved value. From these equations we derive four specific equations and show an algorithm that selects the proper halved value using two trace computations in the worst case. If a base point is fixed, we can reduce these extra field operations by using a pre-computed table which shows the correct halving divisor class — the improvement over the previously known fastest doubling algorithm is up to about 10%. This halving algorithm is ...
