Security Pitfalls Of An Efficient Threshold Proxy Signature Scheme For Mobile Agents, Yong Yu, Yi Mu, Willy Susilo, Man Ho Au Mar 2014

Security Pitfalls Of An Efficient Threshold Proxy Signature Scheme For Mobile Agents, Yong Yu, Yi Mu, Willy Susilo, Man Ho Au

Professor Willy Susilo

A (t,n) threashold proxy signature scheme enables an original signer to delegate his/her signing power to n proxy signers such that any t or more proxy signers can sign messages on behalf of the original signer, but t-1 or less of them cannot produce a valid proxy signature. Based on the RSA cryptosystem, Hong proposed an efficient (t,n) threshold proxy signature for mobile agents. Cai et al. found that the scheme due to Hong is proxy-unprotected , meaning that the original signer can generate a valid proxy signature by himself. However, it is unclear whether the scheme can ...


A Secure And Effective Anonymous User Authentication Scheme For Roaming Service In Global Mobility Networks, Fentong Wen, Willy Susilo, Guomin Yang Mar 2014

A Secure And Effective Anonymous User Authentication Scheme For Roaming Service In Global Mobility Networks, Fentong Wen, Willy Susilo, Guomin Yang

Professor Willy Susilo

In global mobility networks, anonymous user authentication is an essential task for enabling roaming service. In a recent paper, Jiang et al. proposed a smart card based anonymous user authentication scheme for roaming service in global mobility networks. This scheme can protect user privacy and is believed to have many abilities to resist a range of network attacks, even if the secret information stored in the smart card is compromised. In this paper, we analyze the security of Jiang et al.'s scheme, and show that the scheme is in fact insecure against the stolen-verifier attack and replay attack. Then ...

In a recent paper, Shim (2012) presented a very interesting authentication scheme for vehicular sensor networks. Shim claimed that the scheme is secure against the highest adopted level of attack, namely the chosen-message attack (CID-CMA). Nevertheless, we find that the proof in Shim's paper does not actually prove that the scheme is secure in this level. Instead, it can only ensure that the scheme is secure in a strictly weaker level of attack, the adaptive chosen-identity and no-message attack (CID-NMA). In this paper, first we show that there exist some security risks in vehicular networks if a scheme, which ...
