Elliptic Curves, Base Points and Scalars

I discovered the Diffie-Hellman method, and I loved it. Another great discovery was how RSA worked. But the real eye-opener was the discovery of how elliptic curves work in elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). It is a truly wonderful technique and protects your online safety like no other method. We see it in key exchanges with ECDH (Elliptic Curve Diffie Hellman), and in digital signatures with ECDSA (Elliptic Curve…
