  • The yellow bubble shows that ECC is already years ahead of the current industry standard of 2048-bit encryption, and we haven’t even began to test the limits of ECC’s capabilities to encrypt and protect data.ECC performs better in comparison to RSA as requests per second increaseThis translates into faster page loads for PCThese numbers are preliminary and are expected to greatly improveSource: Symantec Internal Research and TestingComputations 384-256-256 RSA 2048-2048-2048Desktop Page sizes: 200KSpecifications8 cores 7 GiB of memory
