The advantages of using public key cryptography over secret key
cryptography include the convenience of better key management and
increased security. However, due to the complexity of the
underlying number theoretic algorithms, public key cryptography
is slower than conventional secret key cryptography, thus
motivating the need to speed up public key cryptosystems.
A mathematical object called an elliptic curve can be used in the
construction of public key...[Show more]
