Efficient Password-based Authenticated Key Exchange without Public Information
Since the first password-based authenticated key exchange (PAKE) was proposed, it has enjoyed a considerable amount of interest from the cryptographic research community. To our best knowledge, most of proposed PAKEs based on Diffie-Hellman key exchange need some public information, such as generators of a finite cyclic group. However, in a client-server environment, not all servers use the same public information, which demands clients authenticate those public information before beginning PAKE. It is cumbersome for users. What's worse, it may bring some secure problems with PAKE, such as substitution attack. To remove these problems, in this paper, we present an efficient password-based authenticated key exchange protocol without any public information. We also provide a formal security analysis in the non-concurrent setting, including basic security, mutual authentication, and forward secrecy, by using the random oracle model.
Pairing-Based Two-Party Authenticated Key Agreement Protocol
To achieve secure data communications, two parties should be authenticated by each other and agree on a secret session key by exchanging messages over an insecure channel. In this paper, based on the bilinear pairing, we present a new two-party authenticated key agreement protocol, and use the techniques from provable security to examine the security of our protocol within Bellare-Rogaway model.
ID-based Encryption Scheme Secure against Chosen Ciphertext Attacks
Rongxing Lu Zhenfu Cao
ID-based encryption allows for a sender to encrypt a message to an identity without access to a public key certificate. Based on the bilinear pairing, Boneh and Franklin proposed the first practical ID-based encryption scheme and used the padding technique of Fujisaki-Okamto to extend it to be a chosen ciphertext secure version. In this letter, we would like to use another padding technique to propose a new ID-based encryption scheme secure against chosen ciphertext attacks. The security of our scheme is based on the Gap bilinear Diffie-Hellman assumption in the random oracle model.
