ECC Performance in Sun's WebServer
By pelegri on Jul 02, 2006
ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography) is a new, cryptographic protocol that is very appealing when security needs are high or computational power is limited (like mobile devices) and is gaining backing in the industry. The latest Sun WebServer (7.0 Technology Preview) has Support for ECC, and so do GlassFish - experimental so far -, and Java.
In his latest blog, Jyri reports on actual measurements of the connection cost for different security protocols on Sun's WebServer and shows Big Improvements for ECC. Check it out!
The team of Sun's WebServer is a close relative of Project GlassFish and I feel a bit guilty I've not been able to keep up with all their interesting blogs in the last couple of months - maybe I'll be able to do some about it next week during Sun's USA shutdown...
