Authenticated Key Agreement With Key Confirmation

September 11, 2021

Authenticated key protocols require the separate setting of a password (which can be smaller than a key) in a way that is both private and integrity. These are designed to withstand man-in-the-middle attacks and other active attacks against the password and established keys. For example, DH-EKE, SPEKE, and SRP are authenticated variations of Diffie-Hellman. If you have a secure way of integrity to verify a released key through a public channel, you can perform a Diffie Hellman key exchange to deduce a short-term released key and then authenticate that the keys match. One possibility is to use an authenticated reading of the key, as in PGPfone. However, voice authentication assumes that it is not possible for a man in the middle to simulate a participant`s voice in real time, which can be an undesirable hypothesis. These protocols can be designed to work with a small public value, for example. B a password. Variations in this regard have been proposed for Bluetooth pairing protocols. Many key exchange systems allow one party to generate the key and send that key simply to the other party – the other party has no influence on the key.

Using a key-agreement protocol avoids some key distribution issues related to these systems. In cryptography, a key memorandum of understanding is a protocol in which two or more parties can agree on a key in such a way that both influence the outcome. If properly implemented, it prevents unwanted third parties from imposing an important choice on the parties. Protocols that are useful in practice also do not reveal to any wiretapped party which key has been agreed. The exponential exchange of keys in itself does not provide for prior agreement or subsequent authentication between participants. It has therefore been described as an anonymous key memorandum of understanding. Secret key (symmetric) cryptography requires the initial exchange of a common key in a private and integrity manner. If done correctly, a man-in-the-middle attack will be avoided. However, without the use of public key cryptography, key management issues can occur. The first publicly known public key memorandum of understanding[1] that meets the above criteria was the Diffie-Hellman key exchange, in which two parties together expose a random generator in such a way that a listener cannot determine in a feasible way what is the resulting value used to make a common key. A large number of cryptographic authentication schemes and protocols have been designed to set up key authenticated agreements to prevent man-in-the-middle and related attacks.. .
