This paper highlights the enhancement in security in VoIP by using ECC. The proposed protocol to enhance security comprises of two phases key generation, Secure transmission. Both phases included ECC which can be proved to be practically secure against most of the popular attacks. The security analysis of the proposed protocol is also given and protocol mathematically to be secure.
