Abstract: We present an algorithm for constructing cryptographic hyperelliptic curves of genus $2$ and $p$-rank $1$, using the CM method. We also present an algorithm for constructing such curves that, in addition, have a prescribed small embedding degree. We describe the algorithms in detail, and discuss other aspects of $p$-rank 1 curves too, including the reduction of the class polynomials modulo $p$.
