Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is an approach to public key cryptography based on the algebraic structure of elliptic curves over finite field. Elliptic curves are also used in several integer factorization algorithms that have applications in cryptography. An elliptic curve in cryptography was suggested independently by the researchers in 1985. Elliptic curve cryptography algorithms entered wide use in 2004 to 2005. Cryptography comes from Greek words meaning \"Hidden writing\". Cryptography converts readable data or clear text into encoded data called cipher text. By definition cryptography is the science of hiding information so that unauthorized users cannot read it.
