Discrete Logs and ECC in a Modern Worlds

Almost every working day, I have the privilege to work in a place that once hosted one the greats: John Napier. It was John who discovered logarithms, and showed the world that g^a times g^b is g^(a+b), and that g^a divided by g^b is g^(a-b). In our modern world, we use this type of method so often in our cryptography…
