ECC in Vista

Interesting - this article states that elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) is in Vista's Crypto NextGen (CNG) API. You can find out more about ECC here and here. ECC is one of the many topics I've always wanted to dive into, but never got around to it. It's cool to see it making it into MS's API - I hope a future version of .NET allows direct access to the ECC provider (although I'm wondering if a call to CreateFromName() on CryptoConfig would work on a Vista build?)
