The need for secure communication over the network has increased drastically over recent years, and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) carries out a significant role in moving secured information. In this work, a hardware implementation of modular arithmetic and group operations over the prime field for an Elliptic Curve Cryptography Processor (ECP) for an efficient security system is proposed. The modular addition or subtraction operation takes only one clock cycle and the modular multiplication, which is designed using the interleaved modular multiplication method, requires 257 clock cycles. For elliptic curve group operation separate point doubling (PD) and point addition (PA) architectures are implemented in Jacobean coordinates. These new architectures are simulated in a Xilinx ISE 14.7. After that, the architectures are implemented in Xilinx Virtex-7 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) with the VHDL language. Proposed modular arithmetic and group operations can be utilized to design an Elliptic Curve Point Multiplication (ECPM).
