ZKProof Proposal: Generation of elliptic curves for circuit use


The standard aims to standarise the construction of elliptic curves for circuits based on different elliptic curve families. We are still working on the general standard proposal and the current draft only contains an example of a generated elliptic curve motivated by zkSNARK. In particular, given a prime p, we searched for a safe (meaning, satisfying SafeCurves critera) Montgomery curve defined over F_p using a deterministic algorithm to avoid speculation of trapdoors.
