Symantec ECC-256 certificates will offer equivalent security of a 3072-bit RSA certificate. Compared to a 2048 RSA key (which is the industry norm), ECC-256 keys are 10,000 times harder to crack.Current Ind. Std.SYMC ECCThe longer the RSA key, the less applicable it becomes in the real world.ECC maintains very complex cryptography w/key lengths that meet demands of realitySource: Symantec Internal Research and TestingComputations http://www.nsa.gov/business/programs/elliptic_curve.shtml The yellow bubble shows that ECC is already years ahead of the current industry standard of 2048-bit encryption, and we havent even began to test the limits of ECCs capabilities to encrypt and protect data.

ECC performs better in comparison to RSA as requests per second increase

This translates into faster page loads for PC

These numbers are preliminary and are expected to greatly improve

ECC performance numbers are expected to significantly improve over time as the industry optimizes for ECC as they did for RSA

With better performance customers will need to purchase fewer servers to handle SSL connections a big cost savings

It is a significant step forward to better protect our data online in this hyper-connected world. As the Certificate Authority ecosystem for ECC gets ready, we will be building support into the Akamai Intelligent Platform.

Citrix recognizes that ECC encryption represents the future of SSL encryption, said Steve Shah, Sr. Director, Citrix. This shift in the cryptographic infrastructure is clearly a next generation approach to the security ecosystem, allowing for better scalability in cloud computing and the supporting infrastructure. Once the certification authority infrastructure is in place, the trend will be clear to follow for networking product groups to make remote datacenters more accessible quickly, even allowing for increasing key sizes and increasing security needs.

F5 helps customers seamlessly combine industry-leading traffic management with security and access solutions, including VPN and SSL encryption capabilities, said Jason Needham, VP of Product Management and Product Marketing, F5 Networks. One of the primary goals is to give organizations more choice and flexibility in deploying technologies to suit their business needs. F5 is proud to team up with leaders like Symantec to help enterprises and service providers enhance web and mobile security while scaling to better support cloud and BYOD initiatives.

We believe in constantly furthering web security, which is why Chrome supports Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) on all modern operating systems, said Adam Langley, software engineer at Google.

QuotesHID Global specializes in security access solutions for the cloud, data and the door, with a comprehensive portfolio incorporating both physical and logical access solutions, said Julian Lovelock, VP of Product Marketing at HID Global. Were very supportive of the new DSA and ECC algorithm options emerging in the marketplace, and we strongly feel that where the NIST Suite B has drawn up the future of security algorithms, the industry will follow."Juniper's SSL VPN solution, #1 in the world market, supports both ECC and DSA algorithms for added security and flexibility. The Junos Pulse SSL VPN client and gateway software are both FIPS compliant, said Michael Callahan, VP of product marketing, Juniper Networks. We are fully committed to and continue to invest in standards-based security solutions, including the strictest of NIST Suite B standards for our customers, across federal, enterprise and service provider markets.

At Opera we are committed to both high quality and security, and we welcome the adoption of new and improved security standards on the web.
