Why Elliptical Curve Cryptography is More Efficient Than RSA
Podcast with Sun Labs Distinguished Engineer Vipul Gupta
June 11, 2007,
Volume 112, Issue 2

Enter Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC), a stronger, more efficient technology than RSA, which, because of its mathematical foundation, consumes far less processing cycles thereby opening up a world of new opportunities

Join Sun Labs Distinguished Engineer Vipul Gupta and Hal Stern, VP of Sun Global Systems Engineering, in a podcast as they discuss the advantages of Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) over RSA.

Topics in the podcast include:

  • How the use of smaller keys allows for faster computations and savings on resources like memory, bandwidth and energy.

  • Why ECC is ideal for the next wave of computing devices - wireless sensor devices such as Sun SPOTs

  • Making sure your ECC implementations communicate with one another

  • Government agencies looking at ECC as a way of protecting public information

  • How a new breed of devices will act as both client and server

  • Mathematically speaking, why ECC is different (and better)

  • Applying ECC to devices

Tune in to the podcast on the Innovating hosted on the Sun site.
