# Want to use ECC but am clueless [closed]

First off, I'm not an experienced cryptography or computer person, please bear with me. I have some basic experiences with PGP software though (not much of a redemption huh?). I have some data that I'd like to protect with ECC encryption, but I can't for the life of me find a tool or anything that can use ECC.

I'm not a computer programmer or anything. I just need a tool that I can use to encrypt my stuff with ECC. I'd be willing to pay for a software if anybody knows of one, but free is always best.

• This question does not appear to be about cryptography within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This is off-topic as it as about security software recommendation rather than actual cryptography. But I think you should really rethink your problem - generally end users should not concern themselves with which algorithms are being used to secure their data, just that it is, so a general purpose tool will probably serve you better (and it may or may not use elliptic curve technology), otherwise you are probably only going to find hobby, proof-of-concept tools that are probably flawed and insecure... –  Thomas May 27 '14 at 7:13
Sorry, this i'm new here. Is there somewhere else I should post it? –  zakshaks May 27 '14 at 7:32
@zakshaks, Help Center says: "If your question is about usage of a specific cryptographic software (not its cryptographic internals), Super User is the right site." –  otus May 27 '14 at 9:22
@zakshaks I can migrate the question to Super User if you would like. –  mikeazo May 27 '14 at 12:40
I'd be willing to pay for a software if anybody knows of one, but free is always best. – Just an idea… but have you thought about asking at SoftwareRecomendations.SE? From my point of view, that would be the perfect place for you to get some software recommendations. ;) –  e-sushi May 27 '14 at 13:05
