I ran several benchmarks using openssl on 2 different computers and I got a surprising result. for the Nist 192 bit curve the benchmark result is ...
I read about the following "safe" ECC curves and notably, secp256 and all the NIST curves are marked as "unsafe" when compared to more modern curves. I need a curve for signing or encryption, (or ...
Besides key and ciphertext sizes what are other advantages of elliptic curve versions of various protocols?
There are elliptic curve variants of Diffie-Hellman, ElGamal, DSA and possibly other protocols/algorithms. I know that these elliptic curve variants have smaller key and ciphertext sizes which will ...
