Executive Summary

Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), discovered independently by Miller and Koblitz in mid 80's, has gained widespread acceptance in recent years, taking over a central role in public-key cryptography that was previously exclusive to the classic RSA. This technological shift is partially explained by ECC's reduced key length requirement to achieve certain security level. The latter brings many benefits such as reduced memory footprint, lower power consumption and faster execution time, among others.
