Public key cryptography realizes to electronically authenticate the users or electronic devises. In these decade years, RSA cryptography has been widely used so as to realize the digital/electronic authentication. However, much more compact and efficient public key cryptographies are desired for which recently elliptic curve cryptography and its extended pairing cryptography have been proposed and partially used in practice. Compare to RSA cryptography, they need much more complicated arithmetic operations because their securities are based on much more difficult mathematic problems. Thus, their implementations also need technical skills so as to make them practical. So as to be efficiently performed even on mobile devices such as smart phones, in addition, so as to be efficiently applied for anonymous digital authentication that keeps private information away from evil Internet users, this group has developed efficient mathematical calculation libraries for software implementations with C/C++ and Java languages, also hardware chips such as FPGA.
