According to Fox News, the researchers said that the age-old methods of encryption, the Diffie-Hellman and Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) shared encryption algorithms which were independently developed in the mid-1970s, are vulnerable to attacks.
ECC's security is based on the elliptic curve discrete logarithm problem, which provides strong, security with public keys (PKs) that are at least ten times smaller than other schemes such as Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) algorithm.
