(Delphi DLL) How to Generate an Elliptic Curve Shared Secret

Demonstrates how to generate an ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography) shared secret. Imagine a cilent has one ECC private key, the server has another. A shared secret is computed by each side providing it's public key to the other. The private keys are kept private.
