In the current circumstance, e-commerce through an online banking system plays a significant role. Customers may either buy goods from E-Commerce websites or use online banking to move money to other accounts. When a user participates in these types of behaviors, their sensitive information is sent to an untrustworthy network. As a consequence, when transmitting data from an internal browser to an external E-commerce web server using the cryptographic protocol SSL/TLS, the E-commerce web server ensures the security of the user’s data. The user should be pleased with the confidentiality, authentication, and authenticity properties of the SSL/TLS on both the user’s web browser and the remote E-commerce web server. E-Commerce web servers should choose the best SSL/TLS cipher suites for negotiating the user in order to attain such optimistic scenarios, as the cipher suite used in SSL/TLS plays an important role in securing E-Commerce web servers. The paper primarily focuses on analyzing the SSL/TLS cipher and elliptic curves. The paper also recommends the best elliptic curve cipher suites for E-Commerce and online banking servers, based on their power consumption, handshake execution time, and key exchange and signature verification time.
