Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC)
Security providers work continuously to innovate technology to upend hackers who are diligent in their efforts to craft clever new ways to steal data. Advanced ECC, while not new, uses a different approach than standard RSA. RSA draws its strength by using increasingly larger logarithms, which take more time to process. ECC, on the other hand, relies on discovering a distinct logarithm within a random elliptic curve. The larger the elliptic curve, the greater the security. Using a random formula improves the encryption strength while a smaller logarithm increases the performance of digital certificates.
Is ECC RIGHT FOR YOU?
Entrust SSL Certificates using ECC technology are ideal for scenarios where server-load performance is critical, and site visitors and the Web/app server are known to be compatible with ECC keys.
