 Dec 30 asked What cryptography is suitable to motivate High School students to learn math? Nov 18 awarded Nice Question Aug 4 awarded Yearling Jul 20 comment How do the following new (2013) ECC curves compare in security or efficiency? If you refrain from closing I'll make the requested modifications later tonight.

Mar 5 awarded Popular Question Mar 3 awarded Notable Question Feb 11 comment If its possible to derive the public key from a private key, why can't we go in reverse? I see. There is more than one notation style. That has been confusing me for quite some time, as I cross reference my books. Feb 11 comment If its possible to derive the public key from a private key, why can't we go in reverse? I'm not sure if this kind of key recovery applies to the 3 scenarios. Again this is all self study so if you have a better path to learning, please do share. Feb 11 comment If its possible to derive the public key from a private key, why can't we go in reverse? @CodesInChaos Thanks. From my algebra background I see A = aG as simple variables. Is the difficulty inherent in the fact we're looking at a multiplicative cyclic group? My intent with this question is to study the simplest approaches to key recovery with crypto the following categories: 1: integer factorization, 2: discrete logarithm, 3: ECC discrete logarithms.
