The need for faster and practical cryptography is a research topic for decades. In case of elliptic curve cryptography, which was proposed by Koblitz and Miller in 1985 as a more efficient alternative to RSA, the applications in real life started after 2000s. Today, most of the popular applications and protocols like Whatsapp, Signal, iOS, Android, TLS, SSH, Bitcoin etc. make use of Elliptic curve cryptography. One of the important factor for high performance elliptic curve cryptography is the finite field multiplication. In this paper, we first describe how to choose proper prime fields that makes use of Topelitz-matrices to get faster field multiplication, then we give parameter choice details to select prime fields that supports Toeplitz-matrix vector product operations. Then, we introduce the safe curve selection rationale and discuss about security. We propose new curves, discuss implementation and benchmark results and conclude our work.

Efficient implementation of TMVP-based prime field multiplication and its applications to ECC
Taşkın, Halil Kemal; Cenk, Murat; Department of Cryptography (2019)
The need for faster and practical cryptography is a research topic for decades. For elliptic curve cryptography, which is proposed independently by Koblitz and Miller in 1985 as a more efficient alternative to RSA, the applications of it in real life started after 2000s. Today, most of the popular applications and protocols like Whatsapp, Signal, iOS, Android, TLS, SSH, Bitcoin etc. make use of elliptic curve cryptography. In this thesis, we present a new representation of finite field multiplication which ...
Analyzes of Block Recombination and Lazy Interpolation Methods and Their Applications to Saber
Aksoy, Berkin; Cenk, Murat; Department of Cryptography (2022-2-28)
Since the beginning of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), The Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) Standardization Process, efficient implementations of lattice-based algorithms have been studied extensively. Lattice-based NIST PQC finalists use polynomial or matrix-vector multiplications on the ring with type {Z}_{q}[x] / f(x). For convenient ring types, Number Theoretic Transform (NTT) can be used to perform multiplications as done in Crystals-KYBER among the finalists of the NIST PQC S...
Related-key attacks on block ciphers
Darbuka, Aslı; Doğanaksoy, Ali; Department of Cryptography (2009)
One of the most important cryptographic primitives is the concept of block ciphers which yields confidentiality for data transmission in communication. Therefore, to be sure that confidentiality is provided, it is necessary to analyse the security of block ciphers by investigating their resistance to existing attacks. For this reason, related-key attacks gain much popularity in recent years and have been applied to many block ciphers with weak key schedules. In this work, our main motivation is to cover typ...
Mutual correlation of NIST statistical randomness tests and comparison of their sensitivities on transformed sequences
Doğanaksoy, Ali; Uğuz, Muhiddin; Akcengiz, Ziya (2017-01-01)
Random sequences are widely used in many cryptographic applications and hence their generation is one of the main research areas in cryptography. Statistical randomness tests are introduced to detect the weaknesses or nonrandom characteristics that a sequence under consideration may have. In the literature, there exist various statistical randomness tests and test suites, defined as a collection of tests. An efficient test suite should consist of a number of uncorrelated statistical tests each of which meas...
Elliptic curve pairing-based cryptography
Kırlar, Barış Bülent; Akyıldız, Ersan; Department of Cryptography (2010)
In this thesis, we explore the pairing-based cryptography on elliptic curves from the theoretical and implementation point of view. In this respect, we first study so-called pairing-friendly elliptic curves used in pairing-based cryptography. We classify these curves according to their construction methods and study them in details. Inspired of the work of Koblitz and Menezes, we study the elliptic curves in the form $y^{2}=x^{3}-c$ over the prime field $\F_{q}$ and compute explicitly the number of points $...
