Efficient Identity-Based and Authenticated Key Agreement Protocol

Yongge Wang

Abstract: Several identity based and authenticated key agreement protocols have been proposed in recent years and all of them have been shown to be non-secure. It remains an open question to design secure identity based and authenticated key agreement protocols. In this paper, we propose an efficient identity-based and authenticated key agreement protocol IDAK using Weil/Tate pairing. A security model for identity based key agreement protocol is established and the security properties of IDAK are proved in this model with random oracle. In particular, it is shown that the IDAK protocol possesses all characteristics that a secure key agreement should have.
