I have been studying RSA cryptography and want to extend this to ECC. I am interested in any books on the topic, that start off with basic principles of elliptic curves as I have almost zero knowledge of them. Can you reccomend any books, or combination of books.

(I do have a good working understanding of group theory pre-postgrad level anyway)

onlyresearch-level questions. However, the site I link to has a broader scope, but is otherwise very similar. – quid Aug 17 '11 at 12:35
