Abstract: This paper describes imple- mentation of a cryptographic coprocessor performing operations on elliptic curve points with affine coordinates in GF(2m). The coprocessor will be implemented in Xilinx Virtex II Pro XC2VP50 on a PCI-X card Combo6X. The goal is to compare the performance of solutions based on polynomial and normal bases when im- plemented into a complex system. Be- cause of this, the coprocessor has inter- changeable arithmetic units and a micro- programmable controller, allowing easy switching between both architectures. The paper describes the basics of the used algorithms, their implementation and pro- poses measurement techniques for com- paring the effectiveness of both variants in the context of a PC system.
