No mention of elliptic curves?

The computational complexity of asymmetric crypto depends crucially on the algorithm used - crypto based on elliptic curves looks better suited to embedded applications than RSA : https://arstechnica.com/security/2013/10/a-relatively-easy-to-understand-primer-on-elliptic-curve-cryptography/

I am actually currently working on this idea, I had it a while back. I do think though while this article is informative, the part about asymmetric crypto being 1000 times more expensive computationally was misleading. It is worded as if to say asymmetric algorithms because they are more expensive, are safer, which is simply not the case.
