Explanation

A calculation technique for encryption applying signed binary representation. In the case of encryption and decryption by Elliptic Curve Cryptosystems, conversion methods using NAF are being used as mainstream technology. In the case of computing the decimal number "15", i.e., binary "1111", for example, this technique transforms each bit, starting from the least-significant bit, from right to left.
