Abstract: Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) can be used as a tool for encrypting data, creating digital signatures or performing key exchanges. Regarding the encryption procedure, the schemes currently used are known as hybrid cryptosystems, as they use both symmetric and asymmetric techniques. Among those hybrid cryptosystems based on ECC, the Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES) is the best known, and as such it can be found in several cryptographic standards. In this work, we present an extensive review and comparison of the versions of ECIES included in documents from ANSI, IEEE, ISO/IEC, and SECG, highlighting the main differences between them that may prevent fully interoperable implementations of ECIES. In addition, a detailed list of the functions and capabilities needed by ECIES and available in Java Card is presented, which allows to provide some conclusions about the practical limitations of a Java Card implementation of ECIES.
