Elliptic curve cryptosystems (ECCs) are becoming more popular because of the reduced number of key bits required in comparison to other cryptosystems (for example, a 160 bit ECC has roughly the same security strength as 1024 bit RSA).

an elliptic curve cryptosystem can be implemented on very low cost microprocessors with reasonable performance..an elliptic curve scalar multiplication with a fixed point, which is the core operation for a signature generation, can be performed in a group of order approximately 2134 in less than 2 seconds Unlike other implementations
