Project Title: Comparative Study of Elliptic Curve Cryptography and RSA in Constrained Environment
Semester: 2 2010
Committe Chair: Dr. Dulal Kar
Committee Member 1: Dr. David Thomas
Committee Member 2: Dr. Hongyu Guo
Project Description: The tremendous increase in the use of mobile and wireless devices with limitations on power and bandwidth postulates a new generation of Public Key Cryptography (PKC) schemes. These PKC schemes should overcome the limitations of the mobile and wireless devices and help in achieving efficiency. At the same time, the new PKC schemes should be capable enough to provide an adequate level of security for such devices. This project examines the use of Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) in such a constrained environment along with the other two aspects of ECC, namely its security and efficiency. In the project, the performance of ECC is compared with the other PKC applications which should prove that ECC performs better and is more suitable for constrained environments.
