ECC Certificates. Today.
While widespread use of elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) digital certificates is still on the horizon, Entrust offers a proven method for enjoying many of the benefits of ECC certificates today. Entrust Hybrid SSL Certificates contain ECC keys signed via Entrust's globally trusted RSA 2048-bit root.
What is ECC? In short, ECC is a family of public-key algorithms that can provide shorter key lengths and, depending upon the operating platform and the applications for which they are used, may provide improved performance over systems based on integer factorization and discrete logarithms. ECC certificates are compatible with the full suite of Entrust Authority solutions.
Review the table below to understand the relationship and use of traditional SSL certificates, ECC hybrid SSL certificates and true full-path ECC SSL certificates.
