  • Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is a form of public-key cryptography. This implies that there is the involvement of a private key and a public key for the purpose of cryptography. ECC can be used for a wide range of applications. The keys used are much smaller than the non-ECC cryptographic algorithms. 256 bit and 384 bit ECC are used by NSA for storage of classified intel as ECC is considered to be a part of suit B cryptography by the NSA. When it comes to normal usage, other versions of ECC are used. So, many of the applications protected by ECC are vulnerable to side channel attacks. So, the objective is to modify the existing method of implementation of ECC is some regular domains like media, smart grid, etc., such that the side-channel attacks [7], [3] vulnerabilities are fixed.
