Hidden Exponent RSA and Efficient Key Distribution


Abstract: In this paper we propose a variant of RSA public key scheme, called ``Hidden Exponent RSA''. Based on this new scheme, we devised an efficient key distribution/management scheme for secure communication among devices in the context of pervasive computing, with emphasis on the simplicity and efficiency of the protocol. We show the new scheme is secure under the strong RSA assumption.
