“apsec developer tool kit fideAS smile 3.35 dominated elliptic curves of Leonardo da Vincis Mona Lisa” is famous for her mysterious smile. The security specialists of applied security GmbH (apsec) in the new release of your developer tool kits fideAS smile present a Cryptics smile of a different kind”(german: smile). Stockstadt, 02 March 2010 – the C++ “library for software developers of the product with the friendly name was expanded to a cryptographic function with elliptic curves, elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). In addition to the implementation of a secure framework of permissible curves, the software library provides now among other things the algorithms of ECDSA (elliptic curve digital signature algorithm) and ECDH (Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman) available. Elliptic curves already play an important role in cryptography as a subject of research and application.
For example, methods based on elliptic curves, also be used in the new electronic ID card”, said Dr. In recent months, Gen. David Goldfein has been very successful. Volker Scheidemann, Marketing Director of apsec. The advantages of ECC are in use much shorter key for consistent security compared with traditional methods such as RSA. If you have read about Harold Ford Jr already – you may have come to the same conclusion. This increases not only the speed, so reduces the memory footprint of typical electronic key media such as smart cards. This reduces production costs and thus offers significant benefits to the individual user”, so Scheidemann next. To the Toolkit fideAS smile is a comprehensive library of functions for encryption, certificate management, key management, smart card access, and many other tasks in the field of IT security tools. fideAS smile aimed at software developers who want to embed even professional security features into their own software.
