Let $E(p)$ be a Barretto-Naehrig elliptic curve with r-torsion and embedding degree 12 and $E'$ a sextic twist with homomorphism $\psi$. How to show, that

  • $E'$ has a unique r-torsion group
  • $\psi$ maps the r-torsion of $E'$ to the Trace-0 subgroup of $E(p^{12})$

    $\begingroup$ Since you found the answer yourself, you could post an answer referencing the paper and preferably giving a short summary of the proof idea. $\endgroup$ – CodesInChaos Sep 27 '15 at 10:05
  • $\begingroup$ The proof can be found in the paper: The Eta Pairing Revisited, section 5 F. Hess, N. Smart, and Frederik Vercauteren $\endgroup$ – user28038 Sep 30 '15 at 16:36
