Secure Transmission of Data through Electronic Devices using ECC Algorithm

Authors(2) :-G. Banu Priya, K. Dharani

In recent days securing the data while transferring through electronic devices from one end to the other has became a challenging task to both sender and the receiver. During the transmission of private data over the electronic devices may be hacked some times by the hackers. The data can be secured by using the cryptographic concept. This paper is about how the data are protected while transferring the data from one electronics devices to another using the ECC algorithm. Cryptographic algorithms plays an important role in securing the data against malicious attacks. The main goal of cryptography is not only to secure data from being hacked or attacked also it can be used for authentication of users. There are two types of cryptographic algorithms namely Symmetric key cryptographic algorithms and Asymmetric key cryptographic algorithms. Symmetric key cryptographic algorithm uses the only one key for both encryption and decryption process, where as Asymmetric cryptographic algorithm uses two different keys for encrypting and decrypting the messages. The public key is made publicly available and can be used to encrypt messages. The private key is kept secret and can be used to decrypt the received messages. Nowadays, many electronic devices like electronic phones, tablets, personal computers are in the workplace for transferring the data. Elliptical curve cryptography (ECC) is a public key encryption technique based on elliptic curve theory that can be used to create privacy, integrity and confidentiality, faster, smaller, and more efficient cryptographic keys.
