elliptic: assembly implementation of P256 for amd64
This is based on the implementation used in OpenSSL, from a
submission by Shay Gueron and myself. Besides using assembly,
this implementation employs several optimizations described in:
S.Gueron and V.Krasnov, "Fast prime field elliptic-curve
cryptography with 256-bit primes"
In addition a new and improved modular inverse modulo N is
implemented here. Also included performance tweaks by Andy
Polyakov from the OpenSSL team.
The performance measured on a Haswell based Macbook Pro shows 21X
speedup for the sign and 9X for the verify operations.
The operation BaseMult is 30X faster (and the Diffie-Hellman/ECDSA
key generation that use it are sped up as well).
