Twisting Edwards curves with isogenies


Edwards’ elliptic curve form is popular in modern cryptographic implementations thanks to their fast, strongly unified addition formulas. Twisted Edwards curves with a = −1 are slightly faster, but their addition formulas are not complete over Fp where p ≡ 3 (mod 4). In this short note, we propose that designers specify Edwards curves, but implement scalar multiplications and the like using an isogenous twisted Edwards curve.
