Wouldn't encrypting a message with AES, then encrypting the (randomly generated) AES key and IV with the EC public key suffice? What attack vectors does ECIES protect against, that an ...
The Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES) describes how to derive a "temporal" key, encrypt a message (eg. using AES) and creating a MAC. However, from my understanding using AES in GCM ...
According to Wikipedia the ECIES algorithm has two optional shared information $S_1$ and $S_2$. They are used as follows: Generate a random shared secret $Z$ according to ECIES, which will never be ...
Assumptions: $A$ wants to communicate with $B$ $A$ knows a public key $P_B$ which is trusted by a third party and belongs to $B$ $A$ knows the address of someone who pretends to be $B$ $A$ wants ...
Assume: Alice and Bob both generate separate EC keypairs Alice obtains Bob's public key, and together with her private key creates a shared secret key Alice encrypts a message using the shared key ...
