Cryptography method with public keys that uses the math of elliptic curves.
Elliptic Curve Cryptography or ECC is a method of encryption and decryption of information that uses one key for encryption and a different key for decryption. Users publish their encryption key, while keeping their decryption key secret. Any public key can be used by anyone to create an encrypted message. Only one party, the owner of the corresponding private key, can decrypt the message.
