I recently looked at software called 'seccure' which is available for
linux. Its a tool for public key encryption using ECC rather than
prime number factoring.
Here NSA is making a case for ECC.
One advantage that does seem to exist is that there is no need to
persistently store any part of the key - so the threat of someone
meddling with your key on the pen drive seems to be removed.
What do you all think about this? Should we start building an ECC WOT? :-)
