This paper describes the implementations and test results of elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) and elliptic curve digital signature algorithm (ECDSA) algorithms based on Java card. A 163-bit ECC guarantees as secure as the 1024-bit Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) public key algorithm, which has been frequently used until now. According to our test results, the 163-bit ECC processing time is about five times faster compared with the 1024-bit RSA, and the amount of resource usages of ECC is smaller than RSA. Therefore, ECC is more appropriate for use on secure devices such as smart cards and wireless devices with constrained computational power consumption and memory resources.
