Main Article Content


This paper deals with encryption of image using Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC).Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) is an approach to public key cryptography based on algebraic structure of elliptic curves over finite fields. Basic ElGamal elliptic curve encryption is used for encryption of the image. It brings about confidential, authentication and integrity in the exchange of data. The primary benefit promised by ECC is a smaller key size, reducing storage and transmission requirements.
