secp256k1 endomorphisms

Recommended Posts

https://github.com/ripple/rippled/blob/develop/src/secp256k1/configure.ac#L117-L120 seems to indicate that this is not set by default and I haven't found a place where it would get set by cmake when building the library. You could probably set it here: https://github.com/ripple/rippled/blob/develop/CMakeLists.txt#L630-L636

@Sukrim yes, that's exactly what I thought. I was looking through the Cmake file and it seemed odd to me that rippled wouldn't use the endomorphisms if they are readily available and would likely speed up the verification and signing process. Thanks for your answer.

@Professor Hantzen will do. I'm currently working on a project to see if the energy consumption of the current protocol can be improved, since there really isn't any monetary incentive to running a ripple node/validator...might as well try to get the cost down as much as possible to encourage more people to participate. I'll be sure to post my findings as they are made.
