Abstract

In this paper we examine identity based encryption using the Weil pairing for supersingular elliptic curves over finite fields F_p with p suitable, large, primes. We examine a specific algorithm suggested in the textbook by Lawrence C. Washington (2008) and describe why and how it works. We show an implementation of this algorithm in Magma. Finally, we show that it is possible to perform this algorithm for different elliptic curves and offer examples of such curves.
