Standards for Efficient Cryptography Group Documents

The Standards for Efficient Cryptography Group (SECG) will develop two sets of documents. The first set, under the name SEC, will specify interoperable cryptographic technologies and solutions. The second set, Guidelines for Efficient Cryptography (GEC), will provide background information on elliptic curve cryptography and recommendations for ECC parameter and curve selection. Future SEC and GEC documents will cover ECC X.509 certificate formats and efficient public-key infrastructure implementations.

These are the released standards:

SEC 1: Elliptic Curve Cryptography
SEC 2: Recommended Elliptic Curve Domain Parameters
