It is widely recognized that data security will play a central role in the design of future IT system. Elliptic key cryptography recently gained lot of attention in industries when the authors talk about security. This paper discusses the basic operation how ECC is more secure than other public key cryptosystems and also how security can be enhanced in ECC by using character-based-method. Encryption is the process of transforming plaintext data into cipher text in order to conceal its meaning and so preventing any unauthorized recipient from retrieving the original data.
