In ICISC 2007, Comuta and others showed that among the methods for constructing pairing-friendly curves, those using cyclotomic polynomials, that is, the Brezing-Weng method and the Freeman-Scott-Teske method, are affected by Cheon's algorithm. This paper proposes a method for searching parameters of pairing-friendly elliptic curves that induces minimal security loss by Cheon's algorithm. We also provide a sample set of parameters of BN-curves, FST-curves, and KSScurves for pairing-based cryptography.
