|ICS Code (Information coding):||35.040|
This part of ISO/IEC 15946 describes the mathematical background and general techniques necessary for implementing the elliptic curve cryptography mechanisms defined in ISO/IEC 15946-5, ISO/IEC 9796-3, ISO/IEC 11770-3, ISO/IEC 14888-3, ISO/IEC 18033-2 and other ISO/IEC standards.
This part of ISO/IEC 15946 does not specify the implementation of the techniques it defines. For example, it does not specify the basis representation to be used when the elliptic curve is defined over a finite field of characteristic two. Thus, interoperability of products complying with this part of ISO/IEC 15946 will not be guaranteed.
