Elliptic curve cryptography is one of the emerging techniques that stand as an alternative for conventional public key cryptography. Elliptic curve cryptography has several applications of which smart cards are also one among them. A smart card is nothing but a single chip that contains microprocessor components. Smart cards are mainly used for secured sign-on in big organizations. The security feature of smart card is provided by elliptic curve cryptography. Elliptic curve cryptography for smart cards can be implemented through several ways.
