Conference paper
Part of the Workshops in Computing book series (WORKSHOPS COMP.)


An overview of well known and not so well known data encryption systems is given. Some suggestions for their use in capability based computer systems are made and problems are pointed out.


Elliptic Curve Finite Field Elliptic Curf Knapsack Problem Encryption System 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
