Download Authentication in Insecure Environments: Using Visual by Sebastian Pape PDF

By Sebastian Pape

Sebastian Pape discusses various situations for authentication. at the one hand, clients can't belief their units and however are looking to be ready to do safe authentication. however, clients would possibly not are looking to be tracked whereas their merchant doesn't wish them to proportion their credentials. Many clients will not be capable of be sure no matter if their machine is reliable, i.e. it could possibly include malware. One answer is to take advantage of visible cryptography for authentication. the writer generalizes this idea to human decipherable encryption schemes and establishes a courting to CAPTCHAS. He proposes a brand new safeguard version and offers the 1st visible encryption scheme which uses noise to complicate the adversary's job. to avoid carrier services from protecting their clients lower than surveillance, nameless credentials can be used. although, occasionally it's fascinating to avoid the clients from sharing their credentials. the writer compares present ways in accordance with non-transferable nameless credentials and proposes an strategy which mixes biometrics and smartcards.

As an other example, we name DECT, whose encryption algorithm was partly reverse engineered and whose implementations where found to sometimes lack the use of authentication and encryption [SWT+ 10, MOTW09, LST+ 09, Men09]. 2 Encryption Schemes 27 suggest that Kerckhoff’s principle is sound. ” we refer to Swire [Swi04]. Before dealing with security models we introduce notions of security and attacker models in the next subsections. We then proceed with attacks, which affect implementations of or protocols using encryption schemes, before we end this section with some thoughts about practical security.

Complexity-Theoretic Security In complexity-theoretic security an appropriate model of computation is defined and the adversary is modelled as having polynomial bounded computational power (time and space). Then security is proven relative to the previously defined model. In this context, it is important to notice that an algorithm solving all instances of a given problem yields automatically an upper bound on the complexity of the problem, which is determined by its worst-case analysis. On the contrary, finding a lower bound of a problem implies to make a statement about all possible (as yet undiscovered) algorithms which solve this problem, which may be quite hard to prove.

Was the first who introduced the ideas of simple power analysis attacks, where the power consumption measurements are directly interpreted, and differential power analysis attacks, where statistical functions are applied to the power consumption measurements [KJJ99]. Again the attack on smartcards is especially easy since their power supply is provided by the terminal [RE08, p. 67ff] and thus is easy to measure. Electromagnetic analysis attack Fundamentally with the same idea, electro- magnetic analysis attacks gather information by measuring the electromagnetic fields near the processor of a cryptographic device.
