Abstract : We present a specialized point-counting algorithm for a class of elliptic curves over F {p^2} that includes reductions of quadratic Q-curves modulo inert primes and, more generally, any elliptic curve over F {p^2} with a low-degree isogeny to its Galois conjugate curve. These curves have interesting cryptographic applications. Our algorithm is a variant of the Schoof–Elkies–Atkin SEA algorithm, but with a new, lower-degree endomorphism in place of Frobenius. While it has the same asymptotic asymptotic complexity as SEA, our algorithm is much faster in practice.

Keywords : Elliptic curve cryptography Schoof-s algorithm Q-curves Point counting
