Cryptography is a widespread technique that maintains information security over insecure networks. The symmetric encryption scheme provides a good security, but the key exchange is difficult on the other hand, in the asymmetric encryption scheme, key management is easier, but it does not offer the same degree of security compared to symmetric scheme. A hybrid cryptosystem merges the easiness of the asymmetric schemes key distribution and the high security of symmetric schemes. In the proposed hybrid cryptosystem, Serpent algorithm is used as a data encapsulation scheme and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is used as a key encapsulation scheme to achieve key generation and distribution within an insecure channel. This modification is done to tackle the issue of key management for Serpent algorithm, so it can be securely used in multimedia protection.
