Abstract

Portable handheld devices are emerging as strong competitors to large traditional electronic devices requiring advanced safety and security mechanisms. Lightweight cryptography is developing as an attractive public-key cryptosystem for use with many such devices, particularly when the devices are not capable of performing sufficient cryptographic operations to guarantee adequate security. The paper provides a survey, how Elliptic Curve Cryptography as a light weight security solution, is accommodating the limitations of resource constrained environments of a whole lot of new generation applications.
