Improved Authentication and Key Agreement Protocol Using Elliptic Curve Cryptography
Source: Anna University
The Elliptic Curve Cryptosystem (ECC) is an emerging alternative for traditional Public-Key Cryptosystem like RSA, DSA and DH. It provides the highest strength-per-bit of any cryptosystem known today with smaller key sizes resulting in faster computations, lower power consumption and memory. It also provides a methodology for obtaining high-speed, efficient and scalable implementation of protocols for authentication and key agreement. This paper provides an introduction to Elliptic Curves and how they are used to create a secure and powerful cryptosystem.
