    ABSTRACT: Pairings on elliptic curves are fast coming of age as cryptographic primitives for deployment in new security applications, particularly in the context of implementations of Identity-Based Encryption (IBE). In this paper we describe the implementation of various pairings on a contemporary 32-bit smart-card, the Philips HiPerSmartTM, an instantiation of the MIPS-32 based SmartMIPSTM architecture. Three types of pairing are considered, first the standard Tate pairing on a nonsupersingular curve \(E(\mathbb{F}_p)\), second the Ate pairing, also on a nonsupersingular curve \(E(\mathbb{F}_p)\), and finally the η T pairing on a supersingular curve \(E(\mathbb{F}_{2^m})\). We demonstrate that pairings can be calculated as efficiently as classic cryptographic primitives on this architecture, with a calculation time of as little as 0.15 seconds.
