This paper involves the development of the Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) for file formats like audio, video and Image. It is also used for the compression of same file formats. The tools are provided for hiding and retrieving data with security constraints. Cryptography means protecting private information against unauthorized access in that situation where it is difficult to provide physical security. The basic idea behind the cryptography is that "If it is not possible to prevent copying of information, it is better to prevent compression."
