I've found two mentions on Wikipedia that Elliptic Curve Menezes–Qu–Vanstone (ECMVQ) was dropped from NSA's Suite B however they seem to imply different reasons. One mention is preceded by talk of how ...
What are the performance and security tradeoffs when selecting “ECC” or “Subgroup” in a U-Prove token?
In one of the U-Prove documents, I remember reading something that compared Subgroups versus ECC and it went something like this (paraphrased): Subgroups Requires a bigger key to achieve equivalent ...
Advantages of using a Digital Signature Scheme (DSS) with Appendix instead of DSS giving Message Recovery
I've been looking at the EMV draft specification (pdf) for using Eliptic Curve Cryptography in payment cards instead of the currently used RSA. One thing I've noticed is that they've moved from using ...
I am wondering if ECC could be used the way that the data is encrypted with the public key instead of the random generated key. Is there any advantage doing that comparing to the "traditional" way of ...
It seems that Elliptic Curve Cryptography, being required by the US government, is not being used outside of the government. Why is this? And why does the government support it's use for government? ...
What is the difference between ECDHE-RSA and DHE-RSA? I know that DHE-RSA is (in one sentence) Diffie Hellman signed using RSA keys. Where DH is used for forward secrecy and RSA guards against MITM, ...
Can ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography) be safely used without infringing on Certicom's patents? I would like to make use of ECC in an embedded system to establish a secure channel. But, I am concerned ...
