F.<x> = GF(2)[]

K.<a> = GF(2**163, name='a', modulus=x^163 + x^7 + x^6 + x^3 +1 )

b = 0x000000020A601907B8C953CA1481EB10512F78744A3205FD

b1 = F(b.digits(2))

xx1 = 0x00000003F0EBA16286A2D57EA0991168D4994637E8343E36

yy1 = 0x00000000D51FBC6C71A0094FA2CDD545B11C5C0C797324F1

xx2 = F(xx1.digits(2))

yy2 = F(yy1.digits(2))

E = EllipticCurve(K,[1,1,0,0,b1])

punto = E([xx2,yy2])


When i try to find the order I got this error!

Running this code consumed all the RAM in my computer. Perhaps this has something to do with the error. What is your question?

Elliptic curves over very large binary fields are not well supported in Sage, so the code is here reverting to generic algorithms, which cannot cope with such large examples.
