  • Yes, that is correct. – MCCCS Feb 17 at 14:19
  • Should be p256 for curve over a prime finite field (which mathematicians abbreviate Fp) with a 256-bit (prime) modulus. The much-less-used sec t {k,r} curves are over F2^n fields, finite extension fields with characteristic two, where the t abbreviates two. – dave_thompson_085 Feb 17 at 22:18
