Cryptography is used today to keep medical data, internet commerce, human rights group’s communications, and much more information secure. Often times a key is needed to be shared among two parties, but the means of communication is not secure. We explore public key cryptography, and specifically how to share keys between two parties publicly using the Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange. We also use the group structure of the points on an elliptic curve to implement the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange.
