Scalar multiplication on elliptic curves

Yayla, Oğuz
Elliptic curve cryptography has gained much popularity in the past decade and has been challenging the dominant RSA/DSA systems today. This is mainly due to elliptic curves offer cryptographic systems with higher speed, less memory and smaller key sizes than older ones. Among the various arithmetic operations required in implementing public key cryptographic algorithms based on elliptic curves, the elliptic curve scalar multiplication has probably received the maximum attention from the research community in the past a few years. Many methods for efficient and secure implementation of scalar multiplication have been proposed by many researchers. In this thesis, many scalar multiplication methods are studied in terms of their mathematical, computational and implementational points.


Efficient scheduling in distributed computing on grid
Kaya, Özgür; Bozyiğit, Müslim; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
Today many computing resources distributed geographically are idle much of time. The aim of the grid computing is collecting these resources into a single system. It helps to solve problems that are too complex for a single PC. Scheduling plays a critical role in the efficient and effective management of resources to achieve high performance on grid computing environment. Due to the heterogeneity and highly dynamic nature of grid, developing scheduling algorithms for grid computing involves some challenges....
Resource-aware load balancing system with artificial neural networks
Yıldız, Ali; Şener, Cevat; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
As the distributed systems becomes popular, efficient load balancing systems taking better decisions must be designed. The most important reasons that necessitate load balancing in a distributed system are the heterogeneous hosts having different com- puting powers, external loads and the tasks running on different hosts but communi- cating with each other. In this thesis, a load balancing approach, called RALBANN, developed using graph partitioning and artificial neural networks (ANNs) is de- scribed. The ...
Implementation of an 8-bit microcontroller with system c
Kesen, Lokman; Aşkar, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, an 8-bit microcontroller, 8051 core, is implemented using SystemC programming language. SystemC is a new generation co-design language which is capable of both programming software and describing hardware parts of a complete system. The benefit of this design environment appears while developing a System-on-Chip (SoC), that is a system consisting both custom hardware parts and embedded software parts. SystemC is not a completely new language, but based on C++ with some additional class libra...
A Static analysis approach for service oriented software engineering (SOSE) designs
Çermikli, Can; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a static analysis approach is introduced in order to develop correct business processes according to the Web Service Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL) specification. The modeling of the business processes are conducted with Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) which is a popular orchestrator of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) based system through the description of workflow. This approach is also integrated to the Service Oriented Software Engineering (SOSE) design tec...
Ethernet based real time communications for embedded systems
Yılmaz, Ozan; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Fast paced improvement of Ethernet technology has also received attention in the industry field like it did in other fields and ways of usage have started to be studied. As it is understood that the standard Ethernet protocols cannot be used due to the unsatisfied real time requirements, industrial and academic researchers have started to develop solutions to overcome this deficiency. In this thesis, the real hardware adaptations of Real Time Ethernet and RTXX protocol algorithms are implemented and their b...
