To overcome the DROWN attack Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) algorithm is used.
The Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is nowadays already a frequently used method for lightweight secured communication solution and it is spread over wide areas.
However, when elliptic curve cryptography is used, the much harder problem of finding the discrete logarithm of a random elliptic curve element results--and nobody actually has figured out how to do that in a practical sense.
Encoding and decoding of a message in the implementation of Elliptic Curve cryptography using Koblitz's method.
Section VI describes the exchange of keys using Elliptic Curve cryptography Section V gives experiments results and Finally, Section VI the analysis and Section VII concludes the paper and future work.
The usage of Elliptic Curve Cryptography with SET will improve its performance since ECC offers smaller key sized then nowadays used RSA, faster computation, as well as memory, energy and bandwidth savings.
Kohel noted that the advantage of elliptic curve cryptography lies in its immunity to the specialised attacks that have eroded the strength of RSA, with the result that smaller keys can be used to provide a given level of protection.

Other features include support for elliptic curve cryptography with 10 times faster processing, support for longer key lengths and unified functionality across the nCipher product line.
Suite B algorithms include Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) prime elliptic curves, Advanced Encryption Standard, and the SHA-2 series of hash functions, as defined by the NSA.
The patents-in-suit are two of Certicom's fundamental patents used in consumer electronics, in particular its world-leading version of Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC).
According to the company, the miniHSM is characterised by a small form factor and supports a wide range of cryptographic algorithms, including common symmetric- and asymmetric-key cryptographic algorithms, such as 3DES, AES, RSA and DH, as well as more specialist algorithms, such as Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC).
Such systems tend to be built around strong cryptographic algorithms like AES or elliptic curve cryptography, and usually use two-factor password methods.
These new cryptography enhancements support, in software, a wide variety of both public- and secret-key cryptography algorithms, including RSA, DES, AES and Elliptic Curve Cryptography.
