EC Cryptography in Java

This chapter provides tutorial notes on generating EC (Elliptic Curve) keys with Java technology. Topics covered include using 'keytool' command to generate EC private-public key pairs; selecting different name elliptic curves or key sizes; writing Java program to generate EC keys.

"keytool -keyalg EC" - Generate EC Key Pair

"keytool -groupname ..." - Select Curve Name
