This article describes low-cost techniques for accelerating the ECC and RSA public-key cryptosystems on general-purpose processor architectures. We focus on hardware acceleration of public-key cryptosystems on 64-bit server machines. A prototype based on a Sparc CPU data path shows a clear performance advantage of ECC over RSA.
