      Description

      ECC is a highly efficient public-key mechanism. Compared to common public-key crypto
      systems such as RSA and DSA it offers equivalent security but with smaller key sizes.
      This results in lower cost in terms of processor speed, memory and bandwidth requirements, and power consumption.

      Add an implementation of Elliptic Curve Cryptographic algorithms to our
      cryptographic providers. Although JDK6 includes some support of ECC in the
      PKCS#11 provider and the SSL implementation, it is dependent on external
      libraries that need to be separately installed and configured. This feature
      will make the benefits of ECC available to all Java applications out-of-the-box.
