Also elliptic curves have\r\nproved to be a good choice for building encryption system. Although\r\nmost of the symmetric systems have been broken, we can create a\r\nhybrid system that has the same properties of the symmetric\r\nencryption systems and in the same time, it has the strength of\r\nelliptic curves in encryption. As DES algorithm is considered the\r\ncore of all successive symmetric encryption systems, we modified\r\nDES using elliptic curves and built a new DES algorithm that is hard\r\nto be broken and will be the core for all other symmetric systems.","references":null,"publisher":"World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology","index":"Open Science Index 39, 2010"}
