A simple public-key algorithm is Diffie-Hellman key exchange. This protocol enables two users to establish a secret key using a public-key scheme based on discrete logarithms. The protocol is secure only if the authenticity of the two participants can be established.

**KEY POINTS**

◆ A simple
public-key algorithm is Diffie-Hellman key exchange. This protocol enables two
users to establish a secret key using a public-key scheme based on discrete
logarithms. The protocol is secure only if the authenticity of the two
participants can be established.

◆ Elliptic curve
arithmetic can be used to develop a variety of elliptic curve cryptography
(ECC) schemes, including key exchange, encryption, and digital signature.

◆ For purposes of
ECC, elliptic curve arithmetic involves the use of an elliptic curve equation
defined over a finite field. The coefficients and variables in the equation are
elements of a finite field. Schemes using Zp and GF(2 Power m) have been developed.

This chapter begins with a description of one of the earliest and simplest
PKCS: Diffie- Hellman key
exchange. The chapter then looks at another important scheme, the ElGamal
PKCS. Next, we look at the increasingly important PKCS known as elliptic curve cryptography. Finally, the use of public-key algorithms for pseudorandom num- ber generation is examined.
