Unit 6 . Question : Name two essential properties of group fields when they are used in elliptic curve cryptography. Student Answer: The two essential properties of group fields when used in elliptic curve cryptography are: In cryptography, the el fields. That is, F (x, y) = 0 are elements of Fq, and the points on the curve are of the form P = (x, y), where x and and yP are called the x-coordinate of P and the y-coordinate of P, respectively. 2. Question : Why or why not is ECC encryption algorithm best suited for handheld wireless devices? Student Answer: ECC encryption algorithm is best suited for handheld devices as it has the most strength per bit of any known pu Instructor Explanation: The Elliptic Curve Cryptosystems (ECC) are used as asymmetric algorithms for digital signature, key distribution, and encryption. Longer keys require more resources to perform mathematical tasks. The fact that ECC uses smaller key sizes makes it appropriate for small handheld devices because it requires fewer resources of the device.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
