EC Encryption of Plaintext Point
- ECES (Elliptic Curve Encryption Scheme) is a schema
that uses elliptic curve subgroup properties to encrypt a
plaintext into a ciphertext using receiver's EC public key. The
ciphertext can only be decrypted back to the plaintext by the receiver
using his/her EC private key.
- ECES encryption process actually uses the ECDH Key Exchange protocol
to derive a shared secret key. Then a shared cipher function is used to
encrypt the plaintext message with the shared secret key.
- ECES decryption process actually uses the ECDH Key Exchange protocol
to recover the shared secret key. Then a shared cipher function is used to
decrypt the ciphertext message with the shared secret key.
- Crypto.Cipher.AES module from the PyCryptodome Python library
can be used to test the ECES encryption and decryption processes.
- Plaintext message can be mapped to a point on the elliptic curve and
encrypted to a ciphertext point using a shared secret point.
