11Elliptic Curve Cryptography
In this chapter we will cover the following:
The basic math of elliptic curves
Elliptic curve groups as a basis for cryptography
The elliptic curve may be the most mathematically challenging algorithm that you will encounter in this book, or in any other introductory cryptography book. If you feel uncertain of your mathematical acumen, it might help to review Chapters 4 and particularly 5. Throughout ...
