ECCPMulPointScalar

Performs scalar multiplication of a point on the elliptic curve defined over GF(p).

Syntax

IppStatus ippsECCPMulPointScalar(const IppsECCPPointState*
pP
, const IppsBigNumState*
pK
, IppsECCPPointState*
pR
, IppsECCPState*
pECC
);
Include Files
ippcp.h
Parameters
pP
Pointer to the elliptic curve point
P
.
pK
Pointer to the scalar
K
.
pR
Pointer to the elliptic curve point
R
.
pECC
Pointer to the context of the elliptic cryptosystem.
Description
The function performs the
K
scalar multiplication of an elliptic curve point
P
over GF(
p
) with the result in a point
R
such that
R = K
·
P
.
The elliptic curve domain parameters must be hitherto defined by one of the functions:
ECCPSet
or
ECCPSetStd
.
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
,
pK
,
pR
, or
pECC
is not valid.
