Supersingular isogeny Diffie-Hellman (SIDH) is attractive for its relatively small public key size, but it is still unsatisfactory due to its efficiency, compared to other post-quantum proposals. In this paper, we focus on the performance of SIDH when the starting curve is E6 : y2 = x3 + 6x2 + x, which is fixed in Round-3 SIKE implementation. Inspired by previous works , , we present several tricks to accelerate key generation of SIDH and each process of SIKE. Our experimental results show that the performance of this work is at least 6.09% faster than that of the SIKE implementation, and we can further improve the performance when large storage is available.
