It can be shown that computing discrete logarithms takes exponential time in general, although it can take less in some cases. For elliptic curves no sub-exponential algorithm is known except in rare, specially constructed, examples. Thus it appears that ECDLs are inherently difficult to compute Breaking either the elliptic curve Massey-Omura or the ElGamal system requires the solution of the elliptic curve analog of the discrete logarithm problem: Elliptic Curve Discrete Logarithm Problem. Given an elliptic curve E defined over GF(q) and two points P,Q e E, find an integer x such that Q = xP if such x exists This now becomes a discrete logarithm problem within a finite field, and which makes it easier to find x. Coding Let's keep it simple by generating a value of x between 0 and 4096, and just use.

These elliptic curves are finite groups with special structures, which can play naturally, and even more flexibly, the roles of the modulus groups in the discrete logarithm problems. Elliptic curves have been used actively in designing many mathematical

The security of ECC is based on the computational difficulty of the Elliptic Curve Discrete Logarithm Problem(ECDLP). It depends on the computer's performance and the number of computers that can be parallelized. As an example, 112-bit ECDLP was actually solved by a cluster of more than 200 PlayStation 3 game consoles for half a year and it is the largest size of ECDLP ever solved. The. problem of applying them to Koblitz curves and other prime degree binary ﬁelds did not admit so easy a solution. Nevertheless, it is fair to say that this problem has not been nearly as well-studied as the elliptic curve discrete logarithm problem. 1.3 A More Cautious Varian A famous example is Fermat's Last Theorem. Starting in the 1970's number theoretic problems have been suggested as the basis for cryptosystems, such as RSA and Diffie-Hellman. In 1985 Koblitz and Miller independently suggested that the discrete logarithm problem on elliptic curves might be more secure than the conventional discrete logarithm on multiplicative groups of finite.

Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange (DHKE) Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange (DHKE) is a cryptographic method to securely exchange cryptographic keys (key agreement protocol) over a public (insecure) channel in a way that overheard communication does not reveal the keys. The exchanged keys are used later for encrypted communication (e.g. using a symmetric cipher like AES) Random number generators using ECC Discrete Logarithm Problem: n → n·P gives random points/numbers. n0 n1 n2 n0·P n1·P n2·P n1 n2 n1·P 66.

Abstract - Elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC) is an approach to public-key cryptography based on the algebraic structure of elliptic curves over finite fields. Public-key cryptography is based on the intractability of certain mathematical problems. Early public-key systems based their security on the assumption that it is difficult to factor a large integer.
