Abstract: This paper is concerned with the implementation and performance evaluation of Elliptic Curve Cryptography in constrained devices such as wireless sensor nodes. Experimental evaluation for Elliptic Curve Digital Signature (ECDSA) on an 8-bit (Arduino mega2560) and a 32-bit ( Arduino Due) processor using the Relic-toolkit has been carried out and comparative implementation results are given. It is shown that by adopting appropriate optimizations an ECDSA can be achieved in 83ms.
Keywords: WSN, ECC, Software Implementation, Relic toolkits.
