Fixed and Variable Size Text Based Message Mapping Techniques Using ECC
Elliptic Curve Cryptography recently gained a lot of attention in industry. The principal attraction of ECC compared to RSA is that it offers equal security for a smaller bit size, thereby reducing processing overhead. ECC is ideal for constrained environment such as pager, PDAs, cellular phones and smart cards. ECC Encryption and Decryption methods can only encrypt and decrypt a point on the curve and not messages. This paper presents the implementation of mapping of text message into multiple points on Elliptic Curve with an Initial Vector (IV) using ECC.
