Abstract : Elliptic curves are fascinating mathematical objects. In this paper, we present the way they have been represented inside the {\sc Coq} system, and how we have proved that the classical composition law on the points is internal and gives them a group structure. We then describe how having elliptic curves inside a prover makes it possible to derive a checker for proving the primality of natural numbers.
