ECCelerate 5.01 released!


We proudly present a new maintenance release of our IAIK ECCelerate™ elliptic curve library! Version 5.01 fixes minor bugs. IAIK ECCelerate™ is based on Java 6 technology and has been thoroughly optimized for speed. Currently, it supports ECDSA, EdDSA, ECDH, X25519/448, ECIES and optionally ECMQV.

IAIK-JCE 5.52 and iSaSiLk 5.2 released!


The new versions of IAIK-JCE and iSaSiLk follow up the recently released new version of IAIK-ECCelerateTM (5.0). IAIK-JCE 5.52 brings some fixes and additions, and iSaSiLk 5.2 adds support for x25519 and x448 ECDHE key exchange and EdDSA signing using Curve25519 and Curve448. Furthermore iSaSiLk now supports RSA-PSS signatures.
