Pairing over BLS12-381, Part 2: Curves

This is the second of three code-centric blog posts on pairing based cryptography. The first post [1] covered modular arithmetic, finite fields, the embedding degree, and presented an implementation of a 12-degree prime extension field tower. The series will ultimately conclude with a detailed review of the popular BLS12-381 pairing operations found in a variety … Continue reading Pairing over BLS12-381, Part 2: Curves
