Pairings on elliptic curves

In the past 5 years there has been an explosion of applications of pairings. In this talk we will describe a recent construction of a variant of the Tate pairing which results in a significant speed-up. Furthermore, we will elaborate on the status of pairing inversion and its implications on pairing based cryptography, but also finite field cryptography.
