With the advent of technology, traditional encryption techniques are facing challenges in key distribution and protection. This paper proposes a novel method of encryption using one time pad and elliptic curve cryptography. Given plain text will be encrypted using one time pad. The resulting cipher text will be encoded using Koblitz method of encoding. This paper describes Koblitz's method to represent a message to a point and point to message. It is already well known that one time pad is unbreakable cipher and is used when highest form of security is desired. The problem of key distribution and protection will be solved using elliptic curve cryptography.
