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).

The adaptation to Go with the help of Filippo Valsorda

what's the copyright story for this file?

I don't remember any other Go package source file
to bear these kind of copyright notices without
any notices.

I don't know whether is ok, so I just bring up the
question.

Word from counsel is that we can't accept this I'm afraid. Intel do have a
CLA on record, but Intel would need to submit it themselves in order for it
to apply.

Could you get Shay to submit it as an act of Intel under the already
executed CLA with Google?

I guess you mean for legal purposes, so neither is
https://github.com/openssl/openssl/pull/263/files (the associated PR)? Do
we have to wait for merge in OpenSSL?

Sorry for the hand-holding, I'm really out of my depth with Copyright
issues.

I do see that the updated patch from Intel on the OpenSSL RT changes the
license to "This software is dual licensed under the Apache V.2.0 and BSD
licenses". I'll check again with counsel.

This is not okay. This is a copyright notice without a license giving the

final commit absolutely must make the situation in this file clearer than
these two lines.

Also, we try to avoid additional notice requirements. The best way to get
this code submitted would be to make it covered by the existing CLAs. In
particular, if you work for CloudFlare then the right thing to do for your
part of this code is to get CloudFlare to do a CLA and then remove the
Copyright CloudFlare line below.

I've consulted with our lawyers and with Intel. Intel do not wish to
publish this code under the Go license and having bits of the Go repo under
different licenses is sufficient unpleasant that counsel didn't want to
entertain the idea.

I'm afraid that, without Intel's permission, it doesn't appear that this
change can move forward.

Not being able to deal with something licensed under Apache v2 seems like a major showstopper that will inevitably lead to more issues down the road guys. It doesn't get much less restrictive than Apache v2. I would either figure out a way to accept it or change dual license Go, although I realize I'm not the one meeting with legal here (thank some deity!).

elliptic: assembly implementation of P256 for amd64

Patch Set 2:

(In reply to a mailing list message that was not attached here.)

From my point of view, the issue with multiple different licenses is not
the restrictions of the license (which I agree are minimal). It's the
requirements on the end user. As far as I can tell, using the Intel code
directly will require all people who distribute binaries written in Go to
include a copy of the Intel copyright notice in their documentation, along
with the Go copyright notice that they are already required to include.
That is not an imposition to add lightly.

We could avoid this if Intel were willing to sign a copyright disclaimer
for purposes of using this code in the Go distribution, but apparently (I
was not in the meeting) they are not.

This leaves us with only unpalatable choices. There is no obvious right
answer.

BSD and MIT are much less restrictive for contributors than Apache v2.

Vlad, it sounds like no matter what the disposition of this CL/code review, it would promote the reuse of this code to add the exact version of the BSD license (there are serveral variants) that Intel licensed the code under to the p256_asm_amd64.s file. It would be very wise and helpful to see the license right under the Intel copyright, so that the BSD license is clearly present after the copyright and there is no confusion about the license status of the file.

Great to hear this is moving forward!

I am not an expert on the internals, but I did a superficial review.

I would really like if functions in "p256_amd64.go" had some descriptions.

https://go-review.googlesource.com/#/c/8968/3/src/crypto/elliptic/p256_amd64.go
File src/crypto/elliptic/p256_amd64.go:

Line 166: }
This drops values silently if len(Bits) > 4


Line 232: func p256PointToAffine(in *p256Point) (xxOut, yyOut *big.Int) {
Is there any reason this isn't a method on p256Point called "Affine"?


Line 353: func p256BaseMult(r *p256Point, scalar []uint64) {
This writes to 'r', so it would be more clear if this was a method.

No reason, the two options are equivalent.

Is there a single IA64 CPU that does not support SSSE3?

IMO, it it "nicer" as a method, though no biggie.

Yes, many. Especially AMD was slow to adopt SSSE3.

SSSE3 MUST be checked, otherwise another way of splatting should be used.

Indeed, Athlons and Phenoms ...
This instruction is not strictly required. Easier to replace than check
CPUID.

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).

The adaptation to Go with the help of Filippo Valsorda

Updated the submission for faster verify/ecdh, fixed some asm syntax and
API problems and added benchmarks.

Please check that the changes that I made in patch set six are ok with you.
There's nothing major in there.

I am still pondering whether the precomputed table should be generated with
a once rather than being 150KB of static data in the binary.

crypto/elliptic,crypto/ecdsa: P256 amd64 assembly

Patch Set 6: Code-Review+1

LGTM. About the table: originally I intended the table in OpenSSL to be
generated with a call to a precompute function, the way elliptic curves
were designed assumed this function was called before repeated curve usage,
and if you needed the curve only once, you would not call it. In reality no
one ever called the precompute function, and as a hack I just bundled the
static table.
In Go we could use once or init() to generate a table, but the problem is
that it would needlessly (and visibly) slow down "only use once" operations
on P256.

Just wondering - how big is the calculation cost?

Could it be a calculated on first use, so it doesn't get a startup cost?

Yeah, it's better to not bloat every Go binary using crypto/tls.
