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)
