**Elliptic Curve Cryptography**

**Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC)** is an approach to public-key cryptography based on the algebraic structure of elliptic curves over finite fields. The use of elliptic curves in cryptography was suggested independently by Neal Koblitz and Victor S. Miller in 1985.

Elliptic curves are also used in several integer factorization algorithms that have applications in cryptography, such as Lenstra elliptic curve factorization.

### Famous quotes containing the word curve:

“In philosophical inquiry, the human spirit, imitating the movement of the stars, must follow a *curve* which brings it back to its point of departure. To conclude is to close a circle.”

—Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)
