What does ECDSA mean?
Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) is a variant of the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) which uses Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). This form of cryptography is based on the algebraic structure of elliptic curves over finite field. it’s used to create a digital signature of data and verify its authenticity without compromising security.
