Elliptic Curve Cryptography

Postby Benli » Wed Feb 01, 2017 6:52 pm

I have two questions about Elliptic Curve Cryptography(ECC).

Code: Select all

private KeyPair keyPairA;
private KeyPair keyPairB;

keyPairA = KeyPair(KeyPair.ALG_EC_F2M,KeyBuilder.LENGTH_EC_F2M_113);
keyPairB = KeyPair(KeyPair.ALG_EC_FP,KeyBuilder.LENGTH_EC_FP_112);

Could anyone tell me what is the difference between ALG_EC_F2M and ALG_EC_FP ?
And is the second parameter the length of private key or public key?

It's recommended to check JavaCard API documentfirstly.You will find the basic introduction about these.
public static final byte ALG_EC_F2M: KeyPair object containing an EC key pair for EC operations over fields of characteristic 2 with polynomial basis.

public static final byte ALG_EC_FP: KeyPair object containing an EC key pair for EC operations over large prime fields
