Elliptic Curve Keys, Python and Hazmat

Well, RSA has been around for over 40 years, and it is struggling in places. In terms of key sizes, we are now at 2,048-bit keys and above. For a lightweight device, we will struggle to perform these sizes of operations. And so Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) has come to our rescue, and where we use typical key sizes of just 256 bits. In fact, Bitcoin and Ethereum, and most blockchain methods use ECC for their keys. So…
