In this paper, the authors present a comparison of three cryptographic methods on mobile devices with the Android operating system. Specifically, methods compared were these: cryptographic method based on the arithmetic of elliptic curves, triples DES and AES. They were chosen because they seemed to be most appropriate due to the limited processing power of today's mobile devices. For comparison purposes of cryptographic methods, a special cryptographic benchmark was created on the Android platform. Overall, 6660 test files were encrypted.
