Crypto++ Library: Exploration

The library is developed under Microsoft Visual C++ Environment. I got headache to see those lines of API programming using MFC, aaaaaaarghghghghgg….

So I will just observe the inner workings and then start to build a simple code of encoding text and decrypt it  using ECC.

Additional info:

Crypto++ supplies 31 predefined Elliptical Curves for use with ECIES (Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme) as specified in ANSI X9.63. These curves range in size from 112 bits to 571 bits. Encrypting a 4 byte message with a 112 bit ECIES object produces a cipher text length of 53 bytes. Encrypting the same message with an ECIES object of 34 bits will produce a 35 byte cipher text.
