comment How to represent point-at-infinity in affine coordinate
@Thomas: I went through the link you posted. My question is not related to encoding of the point-at-infinity. In our implementation after EC operation such as EC point addition we return the point "x=0, y=0" when we encounter point-at-infinity. So I wanted to check is it safe in doing this? Is there a remote possibility of obtaining a valid point with x=0,y=0 when working with standard EC curves?
