ECCPComparePoint

Compares two points on the elliptic curve defined over GF(p).

Syntax

IppStatus ippsECCPComparePoint(const IppsECCPPointState*
pP
, const IppsECCPPointState*
pQ
, IppECResult*
pResult
, IppsECCPState*
pECC
);
Include Files
ippcp.h
Parameters
pP
Pointer to the elliptic curve point
P
.
pQ
Pointer to the elliptic curve point
Q
.
pResult
Pointer to the comparison result of two points:
P
and
Q
.
pECC
Pointer to the context of the elliptic cryptosystem.
Description
The function compares two points
P
and
Q
on the elliptic curve defined over a prime finite field GF(
p
) and allocates the comparison result in accordance with the pointer
pResult
.
The elliptic curve domain parameters must be hitherto defined by one of the functions:
ECCPSet
or
ECCPSetStd
.
The comparison result of two points
P
and
Q
can take one of the following values:
ippECPointIsEqual
Points
P
and
Q
are equal.
ippECPointIsNotEqual
Points
P
and
Q
are different.
Return Values
ippStsNoErr
Indicates no error. Any other value indicates an error or warning.
ippStsNullPtrErr
Indicates an error condition if any of the specified pointers is
NULL
.
ippStsContextMatchErr
Indicates an error condition if one of the contexts pointed by
pP
or
pECC
is not valid.
