Hyper Elliptic Curve Cryptography (HECC) is a public key cryptographic technique which is required for secure transmission. HECC is better than the existing public key cryptography technique such as RSA, DSA, AES and ECC in terms of smaller key size. DNA cryptography is a next generation security mechanism, storing almost a million gigabytes of data inside DNA strands. Existing DNA based Elliptic Curve Cryptographic (ECC) technique require larger key size to encrypt and decrypt the message resulting in increased processing time, more computational and memory overhead. To overcome the above limitations, DNA strands are used to encode the data to provide first level of security and HECC encryption algorithm is used for providing second level of security.
