The impact of the elliptic curve method for integer factorisation (developed by my PhD advisor Hendrik Lenstra) has played a role in introducing elliptic curves to cryptographers, albeit for attacking the underlying problem on which RSA is based (the difficulty of factoring integers)," said David Kohel, convenor of the ESF workshop, from the Institut de Mathematiques de Luminy in Marseille, France.
