Include Files
ippcp.h
Parameters
pA
Pointer to the context of the first point on the elliptic curve to be added.
pQ
Pointer to the context of the second point on the elliptic curve to be added.
pR
Pointer to the context of the resulting point on the elliptic curve.
pEC
Pointer to the context of the elliptic curve.
Description
This function computes the coordinates of the elliptic curve point that is equal to the sum of two given points. The following pseudocode represents this operation:
R = P + Q
.
Return Values
ippStsNoErr
Indicates no error. Any other value indicates an error or warning.
ippStsNullPtrErr
Indicates an error condition if any of the specified is
NULL
.
ippStsContextMatchErr
Indicates an error condition if any of the specified contexts does not match the operation.
ippStsOutOfRangeErr
Indicates an error condition if any of the specified points does not belong to the finite field over which the elliptic curve is initialized.
