There are many drawbacks in current encryption algorithms in terms of security, real-time performance, etc., and researchers are continuously formulating various algorithms to overcome the same. Among them, the Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is evolving as an important cryptography and shows a promise to be an alternative of RSA. Small size, high security and other features characterize ECC. This paper is to develop a basis for utilizing efficient encryption schemes in cryptography with low computing power and resources. ECC fits well for an efficient and secure encryption scheme. It is more efficient than the ubiquitous RSA based schemes because ECC utilizes smaller key sizes for equivalent security.
