Summary: Recently, V. S. Dimitrov et. al. [IEEE Trans. Comput. 57, No. 11, 1469–1481 (2008; doi:10.1109/TC.2008.65)] proposed a novel algorithm for scalar multiplication of points on elliptic Koblitz curves that requires a provably sublinear number of point additions in the size of the scalar. Following some ideas used by this article, most notably double-base expansions for integers, we generalize their methods to hyperelliptic Koblitz curves of arbitrary genus over any finite field, obtaining a scalar multiplication algorithm requiring a sublinear number of divisor additions.
