Abstract

As elliptic curves become more accepted and used in the field of cryptography, more curves will be needed for the growing number of elliptic curve cryptosystems. Traditional trial and error methods of curve generation can take a long time, and do not always produce a curve with desired characteristics. For an elliptic curve reference library, a curve generator was designed and written in the Java programming language, using the method of complex multiplication, desirable for its efficiency and flexibility.
