If Barreto-Naehrig Curves are suitable for pairing-based cryptography, can I use the library available at Optimal ATE Pairing?

  • $\begingroup$ Why can't you? The BN curves are suitable for crypto application and computing curves order is obvious. You can also take a look over the web to the work of Frederik.Vercauteren, another expert in this domain. $\endgroup$ – Robert NACIRI Feb 9 '15 at 6:20
  • $\begingroup$ BN curves are actually a very good choice for pairing based crypto from a security-performance tradeoff point of view. Can you use the library? Sure, if you like it...but there are also some others. $\endgroup$ – DrLecter Feb 11 '15 at 22:48
