In today‟s era of the ubiquitous computing, the Internet has become the main mode of data communication. Most of the devices used in wireless/mobile environments, that form wireless networks, ad-hoc networks and wireless sensor networks etc., have low computational power, memory and limited battery power. In such a Pervasive Computing environment, providing security to data becomes a complex task. Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) has become the preferred choice for the pervasive computing…
