Elliptic curve cryptography is an efficient modern approach to public-key cryptosystems. In this introduction, our goal will be to focus on the high-level principles of what makes ECC work. We will omit implementation details and mathematical proofs, we can save those for another article. What It’s For? A common use of ECC is to encrypt data … Read more (Very) Basic Intro To Elliptic Curve Cryptography
If you are getting into cryptography, or just trying to understand the fundamentals, you may have noticed that the exclusive-or operation is used quite often, especially in ciphers. What is XOR (⊕)? XOR, or “exclusive or” operates on binary data. It returns true if both of its inputs are opposites (one false and one true), … Read more Why is Exclusive Or (XOR) Important in Cryptography?
