Abstract:Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is a relatively recent branch of cryptography based on the arithmetic of elliptic curves and the Elliptic Curve Discrete Logarithm Problem (ECDLP). Elliptic curve cryptographic schemes are public-key mechanisms that provide encryption, digital signature and key exchange capabilities. The best known encryption scheme based on ECC is the Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES), included in the ANSI X9.63, ISO/IEC 18033-2, IEEE 1363a, and SECG SEC 1 standards. In the present work, we offer a comprehensive introduction to ECIES, detailing the encryption and decryption procedures and the list of functions and special characteristics included in aforementioned standards
