When you multiply a scalar value by an EC point, you get an EC point. According to the above comment, it is possible to take the output point and derive the input point. How is this done? Does it require knowing k?
Note that I'm specifically not asking about extracting the scalar value (k) from the output point.
Also note that this wouldn't be useful to breaking Bitcoin signature algorithm - the generator that private keys are multiplied by is publicly known.
