1. Introduction
1.1. General Information
1. GOST R 34.102001 [GOST3410] was developed by the Federal Agency
for Government Communication and Information under the President
of the Russian Federation with the participation of the AllRussia
Scientific and Research Institute of Standardization.
GOST R 34.102001 was submitted by Federal Agency for Government
Communication and Information at President of the Russian
Federation.
2. GOST R 34.102001 was accepted and activated by the Act 380st of
12.09.2001 issued by the Government Committee of Russia for
Standards.
3. GOST R 34.102001 was developed in accordance with the terminology
and concepts of international standards ISO 23822:1976 "Data
processing  Vocabulary  Part 2: Arithmetic and logic
operations"; ISO/IEC 9796:1991 "Information technology  Security
techniques  Digital signature schemes giving message recovery";
ISO/IEC 14888 "Information technology  Security techniques 
Digital signatures with appendix"; and ISO/IEC 10118 "Information
technology  Security techniques  Hashfunctions".
4. GOST R 34.102001 replaces GOST R 34.1094.
1.2. The Purpose of GOST R 34.102001
GOST R 34.102001 describes the generation and verification processes
for digital signatures, based on operations with an elliptic curve
points group, defined over a prime finite field.
GOST R 34.102001 has been developed to replace GOST R 34.1094.
Necessity for this development is caused by the need to increase
digital signature security against unauthorized modification.
Digital signature security is based on the complexity of discrete
logarithm calculation in an elliptic curve points group and also on
the security of the hash function used (according to [GOST3411]).
Terminologically and conceptually, GOST R 34.102001 is in accordance
with international standards ISO 23822 [ISO23822], ISO/IEC 9796
[ISO97961991], ISO/IEC 14888 Parts 13 [ISO148881][ISO148883],
and ISO/IEC 10118 Parts 14 [ISO101181][ISO101184].
Note: the main part of GOST R 34.102001 is supplemented with three
appendixes:
"Extra Terms in the Digital Signature Area" (Appendix A of this
memo);
"Test Examples" (Section 7 of this memo);
"A Bibliography in the Digital Signature Area" (Section 9.2 of
this memo).
2. Applicability
GOST R 34.102001 defines an electronic digital signature (or simply
digital signature) scheme, digital signature generation and
verification processes for a given message (document), meant for
transmission via insecure public telecommunication channels in data
processing systems of different purposes.
Use of a digital signature based on GOST R 34.102001 makes
transmitted messages more resistant to forgery and loss of integrity,
in comparison with the digital signature scheme prescribed by the
previous standard.
GOST R 34.102001 is obligatory to use in the Russian Federation in
all data processing systems providing public services.
3. Definitions and Notations
3.1. Definitions
The following terms are used in the standard:
Appendix: Bit string, formed by a digital signature and by the
arbitrary text field [ISO148881].
Signature key: Element of secret data, specific to the subject and
used only by this subject during the signature generation process
[ISO148881].
Verification key: Element of data mathematically linked to the
signature key data element, used by the verifier during the digital
signature verification process [ISO148881].
Domain parameter: Element of data that is common for all the subjects
of the digital signature scheme, known or accessible to all the
subjects [ISO148881].
Signed message: A set of data elements, which consists of the message
and the appendix, which is a part of the message.
Pseudorandom number sequence: A sequence of numbers, which is
obtained during some arithmetic (calculation) process, used in a
specific case instead of a true random number sequence [ISO23822].
Random number sequence: A sequence of numbers none of which can be
predicted (calculated) using only the preceding numbers of the same
sequence [ISO23822].
Verification process: A process that uses the signed message, the
verification key, and the digital signature scheme parameters as
initial data and that gives the conclusion about digital signature
validity or invalidity as a result [ISO148881].
Signature generation process: A process that uses the message, the
signature key, and the digital signature scheme parameters as initial
data and that generates the digital signature as the result
[ISO148881].
Witness: Element of data (resulting from the verification process)
that states to the verifier whether the digital signature is valid or
invalid [ISO1488811]).
Random number: A number chosen from the definite number set in such a
way that every number from the set can be chosen with equal
probability [ISO23822].
Message: String of bits of a limited length [ISO97961991].
Hash code: String of bits that is a result of the hash function
[ISO1488811].
Hash function: The function, mapping bit strings onto bit strings of
fixed length observing the following properties:
1) it is difficult to calculate the input data, that is the pre
image of the given function value;
2) it is difficult to find another input data that is the pre
image of the same function value as is the given input data;
3) it is difficult to find a pair of different input data,
producing the same hash function value.
Note: Property 1 in the context of the digital signature area means
that it is impossible to recover the initial message using the
digital signature; property 2 means that it is difficult to find
another (falsified) message that produces the same digital signature
as a given message; property 3 means that it is difficult to find
some pair of different messages, which both produce the same
signature.
(Electronic) Digital signature: String of bits obtained as a result
of the signature generation process. This string has an internal
structure, depending on the specific signature generation mechanism.
Note: In GOST R 34.102001 terms, "Digital signature" and "Electronic
digital signature" are synonymous to save terminological succession
to native legal documents currently in force and scientific
publications.

4. General Statements
A commonly accepted digital signature scheme (model) (see Section 6
of [ISO/IEC148881]) consists of three processes:
 generation of a pair of keys (for signature generation and for
signature verification);
 signature generation;
 signature verification.
In GOST R 34.102001, a process for generating a pair of keys (for
signature and verification) is not defined. Characteristics and ways
of the process realization are defined by involved subjects, who
determine corresponding parameters by their agreement.
The digital signature mechanism is defined by the realization of two
main processes (see Section 7):
 signature generation (see Section 6.1) and
 signature verification (see Section 6.2).
The digital signature is meant for the authentication of the
signatory of the electronic message. Besides, digital signature
usage gives an opportunity to provide the following properties during
signed message transmission:
 realization of control of the transmitted signed message
integrity,
 proof of the authorship of the signatory of the message,
 protection of the message against possible forgery.
A schematic representation of the signed message is shown in
Figure 1.

Figure 1: Signed message scheme
The field "digital signature" is supplemented by the field "text"
(see Figure 1), that can contain, for example, identifiers of the
signatory of the message and/or time label.
The digital signature scheme determined in GOST R 34.102001 must be
implemented using operations of the elliptic curve points group,
defined over a finite prime field, and also with the use of hash
function.
The cryptographic security of the digital signature scheme is based
on the complexity of solving the problem of the calculation of the
discrete logarithm in the elliptic curve points group and also on the
security of the hash function used. The hash function calculation
algorithm is determined in [GOST3411].
The digital signature scheme parameters needed for signature
generation and verification are determined in Section 5.2.
GOST R 34.102001 does not determine the process of generating
parameters needed for the digital signature scheme. Possible sets of
these parameters are defined, for example, in [RFC4357].
The digital signature represented as a binary vector of a 512bit
length must be calculated using a definite set of rules, as stated in
Section 6.1.
The digital signature of the received message is accepted or denied
in accordance with the set of rules, as stated in Section 6.2.
5. Mathematical Conventions
To define a digital signature scheme, it is necessary to describe
basic mathematical objects used in the signature generation and
verification processes. This section lays out basic mathematical
definitions and requirements for the parameters of the digital
signature scheme.
5.1. Mathematical Definitions
Suppose a prime number p > 3 is given. Then, an elliptic curve E,
defined over a finite prime field GF(p), is the set of number pairs
(x,y), x, y belong to Fp, satisfying the identity:
y^2 = x^3 + a*x + b (mod p), (1)
where a, b belong to GF(p) and 4*a^3 + 27*b^2 is not congruent to
zero modulo p.
An invariant of the elliptic curve is the value J(E), satisfying the
equality:
4*a^3
J(E) = 1728 *  (mod p) (2)
4*a^3+27*b^2
Elliptic curve E coefficients a,b are defined in the following way
using the invariant J(E):
 a=3*k (mod p)
 J(E)
 b=2*k (mod p), where k =  (mod p), J(E) /= 0 or 1728 (3)
1728  J(E)
The pairs (x,y) satisfying the identity (1) are called the elliptic
curve E points; x and y are called x and ycoordinates of the point,
correspondingly.
We will denote elliptic curve points as Q(x,y) or just Q. Two
elliptic curve points are equal if their x and ycoordinates are
equal.
On the set of all elliptic curve E points, we will define the
addition operation, denoted by "+". For two arbitrary elliptic curve
E points Q1 (x1, y1) and Q2 (x2, y2), we will consider several
variants.
Suppose coordinates of points Q1 and Q2 satisfy the condition x1 /=
x2. In this case, their sum is defined as a point Q3 (x3,y3), with
coordinates defined by congruencies:
 x3=lambda^2x1x2 (mod p), y1y2
 where lambda=  (mod p). (4)
 y3=lambda*(x1x3)y1 (mod p), x1x2
If x1 = x2 and y1 = y2 /= 0, then we will define point Q3 coordinates
in the following way:
 x3=lambda^2x1*2 (mod p), 3*x1^2+a
 where lambda=  (mod p) (5)
 y3=lambda*(x1x3)y1 (mod p), y1*2
If x1 = x2 and y1 =  y2 (mod p), then the sum of points Q1 and Q2 is
called a zero point O, without determination of its x and y
coordinates. In this case, point Q2 is called a negative of point
Q1. For the zero point, the equalities hold:
O+Q=Q+O=Q, (6)
where Q is an arbitrary point of elliptic curve E.
A set of all points of elliptic curve E, including zero point, forms
a finite abelian (commutative) group of order m regarding the
introduced addition operation. For m, the following inequalities
hold:
p + 1  2*sqrt(p) =< m =< p + 1 + 2*sqrt(p). (7)
The point Q is called a point of multiplicity k, or just a multiple
point of the elliptic curve E, if for some point P the following
equality holds:
Q = P + ... + P = k*P. (8)
+
k
5.2. Digital Signature Parameters
The digital signature parameters are:
 prime number p is an elliptic curve modulus, satisfying the
inequality p > 2^255. The upper bound for this number must be
determined for the specific realization of the digital signature
scheme;
 elliptic curve E, defined by its invariant J(E) or by
coefficients a, b belonging to GF(p).
 integer m is an elliptic curve E points group order;
 prime number q is an order of a cyclic subgroup of the elliptic
curve E points group, which satisfies the following conditions:
 m = nq, n belongs to Z , n>=1
 (9)
 2^254 < q < 2^256
 point P /= O of an elliptic curve E, with coordinates (x_p,
y_p), satisfying the equality q*P=O.
 hash function h(.):V_all > V256, which maps the messages
represented as binary vectors of arbitrary finite length onto
binary vectors of a 256bit length. The hash function is
determined in [GOST3411].
Every user of the digital signature scheme must have its personal
keys:
 signature key, which is an integer d, satisfying the inequality
0 < d < q;
 verification key, which is an elliptic curve point Q with
coordinates (x_q, y_q), satisfying the equality d*P=Q.
The previously introduced digital signature parameters must satisfy
the following requirements:
 it is necessary that the condition p^t/= 1 (mod q ) holds for
all integers t = 1, 2, ... B where B satisfies the inequality B
>= 31;
 it is necessary that the inequality m /= p holds;
 the curve invariant must satisfy the condition J(E) /= 0, 1728.
5.3. Binary Vectors
To determine the digital signature generation and verification
processes, it is necessary to map the set of integers onto the set of
binary vectors of a 256bit length.
Consider the following binary vector of a 256bit length where low
order bits are placed on the right, and highorder ones are placed on
the left:
H = (alpha[255], ... , alpha[0]), H belongs to V256 (10)
where alpha[i], i = 0, ... , 255 are equal to 1 or to 0. We will say
that the number alpha belonging to Z is mapped onto the binary vector
h, if the equality holds:
alpha = alpha[0]*2^0 + alpha[1]*2^1 + ... + alpha[255]*2^255 (11)
For two binary vectors H1 and H2, which correspond to integers alpha
and beta, we define a concatenation (union) operation in the
following way. If:
H1 = (alpha[255], ... , alpha[0]),
(12)
H2 = (beta[255], ..., beta[0]),
then their union is
H1H2 = (alpha[255], ... , alpha[0], beta[255], ..., beta[0])
(13)
that is a binary vector of 512bit length, consisting of coefficients
of the vectors H1 and H2.
On the other hand, the introduced formulae define a way to divide a
binary vector H of 512bit length into two binary vectors of 256bit
length, where H is the concatenation of the two.
6. Main Processes
In this section, the digital signature generation and verification
processes of user's message are defined.
For the realization of the processes, it is necessary that all users
know the digital signature scheme parameters, which satisfy the
requirements of Section 5.2.
Besides, every user must have the signature key d and the
verification key Q(x[q], y[q]), which also must satisfy the
requirements of Section 5.2.
6.1. Digital Signature Generation Process
It is necessary to perform the following actions (steps) according to
Algorithm I to obtain the digital signature for the message M
belonging to V_all:
Step 1  calculate the message hash code M: H = h(M). (14)
Step 2  calculate an integer alpha, binary representation of which
is the vector H, and determine e = alpha (mod q ). (15)
If e = 0, then assign e = 1.
Step 3  generate a random (pseudorandom) integer k, satisfying the
inequality:
0 < k < q. (16)
Step 4  calculate the elliptic curve point C = k*P and determine if:
r = x_C (mod q), (17)
where x_C is xcoordinate of the point C. If r = 0, return to
step 3.
Step 5  calculate the value:
s = (r*d + k*e) (mod q). (18)
If s = 0, return to step 3.
Step 6  calculate the binary vectors R and S, corresponding to r
and s, and determine the digital signature zeta = (R  S) as a
concatenation of these two binary vectors.
The initial data of this process are the signature key d and the
message M to be signed. The output result is the digital signature
zeta.
6.2. Digital Signature Verification
To verify digital signatures for the received message M belonging to
V_all, it is necessary to perform the following actions (steps)
according to Algorithm II:
Step 1  calculate the integers r and s using the received signature
zeta. If the inequalities 0 < r < q, 0 < s < q hold, go to the next
step. Otherwise, the signature is invalid.
Step 2  calculate the hash code of the received message M:
H = h(M). (19)
Step 3  calculate the integer alpha, the binary representation of
which is the vector H, and determine if:
e = alpha (mod q). (20)
If e = 0, then assign e = 1.
Step 4  calculate the value v = e^(1) (mod q). (21)
Step 5  calculate the values:
z1 = s*v (mod q), z2 = r*v (mod q). (22)
Step 6  calculate the elliptic curve point C = z1*P + z2*Q and
determine if:
R = x_C (mod q), (23)
where x_C is xcoordinate of the point.
Step 7  if the equality R = r holds, then the signature is accepted.
Otherwise, the signature is invalid.
The input data of the process are the signed message M, the digital
signature zeta, and the verification key Q. The output result is the
witness of the signature validity or invalidity.

Appendix A. Extra Terms in the Digital Signature Area
The appendix gives extra international terms applied in the
considered and allied areas.
1. Padding: Extending a data string with extra bits [ISO101181].
2. Identification data: A list of data elements, including specific
object identifier, that belongs to the object and is used for its
denotation [ISO148881].
3. Signature equation: An equation, defined by the digital signature
function [ISO148881].
4. Verification function: A verification process function, defined by
the verification key, which outputs a witness of the signature
authenticity [ISO148881].
5. Signature function: A function within a signature generation
process, defined by the signature key and by the digital signature
scheme parameters. This function inputs a part of initial data
and, probably, a pseudorandom number sequence generator
(randomizer), and outputs the second part of the digital
signature.
