# ECC encryption in practice

I'd like to encrypt a message using PGP keys, and elliptic curve cryptography as the method.

In practice, using the Erlang :crypto module, but first, I'd like to wrap my head around how I would begin to go about this.

Should I generate an ECC PGP key? Should I use my normal PGP key and sign using :crypto module using ECC as the method.. if that is possible that is.

Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

First time poster in Cryptography, BTW.
