Theory of Cryptography Joe Kilian 2005-01-27 TCC 2005, the 2nd Annual Theory of Cryptography Conference, was held in Cambridge,Massachusetts,onFebruary10–12,2005.Theconferencereceived84 submissions,ofwhichtheprogramcommitteeselected32forpresentation.These proceedings contain the revised versions of the submissions that were presented at the conference. These revisions have not been checked for correctness, and the authors bear full responsibility for the contents of their papers. The conference program also included a panel discussion on the future of theoretical cryptography and its relationship to the real world (whatever that is). It also included the traditional “rump session,” featuring short, informal talks on late-breaking research news. Much as hatters of old faced mercury-induced neurological damage as an occupational hazard, computer scientists will on rare occasion be a?icted with egocentrism, probably due to prolonged CRT exposure. Thus, you must view withpityandnotcontemptmyunalloyedelationathavingmynameonthefront cover of this LNCS volume, and my deep-seated conviction that I fully deserve the fame and riches that will surely come of it. However, having in recent years switched over to an LCD monitor, I would like to acknowledge some of the many who contributed to this conference. First thanks are due to the many researchers from all over the world who submitted their work to this conference. Lacking shrimp and chocolate-covered strawberries, TCC has to work hard to be a good conference. As a community, I think we have.
Advances in Cryptology -- CRYPTO 2003 Dan Boneh 2003-10-24 Crypto 2003, the 23rd Annual Crypto Conference, was sponsored by the Int- national Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) in cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy and the Computer Science Department of the University of California at Santa Barbara. The conference received 169 submissions, of which the program committee selected 34 for presentation.

These revisions have not been checked for correctness, and the authors bear full responsibility for the contents of their papers. Submissions to the conference represent cutti- edge research in the cryptographic community worldwide and cover all areas of cryptography. Many high-quality works could not be accepted. These works will surely be published elsewhere. The conference program included two invited lectures. Moni Naor spoke on cryptographic assumptions and challenges. Hugo Krawczyk spoke on the ‘SI- and-MAc’approachtoauthenticatedDi?e-HellmananditsuseintheIKEpro- cols. The conference program also included the traditional rump session, chaired by Stuart Haber, featuring short, informal talks on late-breaking research news. Assembling the conference program requires the help of many many people. To all those who pitched in, I am forever in your debt. I would like to ?rst thank the many researchers from all over the world who submitted their work to this conference. Without them, Crypto could not exist. I thank Greg Rose, the general chair, for shielding me from innumerable logistical headaches, and showing great generosity in supporting my e?orts.
Applications of Secure Multiparty Computation P. Laud 2015-07-30 We generate and gather a lot of data about ourselves and others, some of it highly confidential. The collection, storage and use of this data is strictly regulated by laws, but restricting the use of data often limits the benefits which could be obtained from its analysis. Secure multi-party computation (SMC), a cryptographic technology, makes it possible to execute specific programs on confidential data while ensuring that no other sensitive information from the data is leaked. SMC has been the subject of academic study for more than 30 years, but first attempts to use it for actual computations in the early 2000s – although theoretically efficient – were initially not practicable. However, improvements in the situation have made possible the secure solving of even relatively large computational tasks. This book describes how many different computational tasks can be solved securely, yet efficiently. It describes how protocols can be combined to larger applications, and how the security-efficiency trade-offs of different components of an SMC application should be chosen. Many of the results described in this book were achieved as part of the project Usable and Efficient Secure Multi-party Computation (UaESMC), which was funded by the European Commission. The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the secure analysis of confidential data.

Bee-Inspired Protocol Engineering Muddassar Farooq 2008-11-30 Honey bee colonies demonstrate robust adaptive efficient agent-based communications and task allocations without centralized controls – desirable features in network design. This book introduces a multipath routing algorithm for packet-switched telecommunication networks based on techniques observed in bee colonies. The algorithm, BeeHive, is dynamic, simple, efficient, robust and flexible, and it represents an important step towards intelligent networks that optimally manage resources. The author guides the reader in a survey of nature-inspired routing protocols and communication techniques observed in insect colonies. He then offers the design of a scalable framework for nature-inspired routing algorithms, and he examines a practical application using real networks of Linux routers. He also utilizes formal techniques to analytically model the performance of nature-inspired routing algorithms. In the last chapters of the book, he introduces an immune-inspired security framework for nature-inspired algorithms, and uses the wisdom of the hive for routing in ad hoc and sensor networks. Finally, the author provides a comprehensive bibliography to serve as a reference for nature-inspired solutions to networking problems. This book bridges the gap between natural computing and computer networking. What sets this book apart from other texts on this subject is its natural engineering approach in which the challenges and objectives of a real-world system are identified before its solution, nature-inspired or otherwise, is discussed. This balanced exposition of the book makes it equally suitable for telecommunication network designers and theorists, and computer science researchers engaged with artificial intelligence, agents, and nature-inspired techniques.
Wireless Security and Cryptography Nicolas Sklavos 2017-12-19 As the use of wireless devices becomes widespread, so does the need for strong and secure transport protocols. Even with this intensified need for securing systems, using cryptography does not seem to be a viable solution due to difficulties in implementation.

Power Analysis Attacks Stefan Mangard 2008-01-03 Power analysis attacks allow the extraction of secret information from smart cards. Smart cards are used in many applications including banking, mobile communications, pay TV, and electronic signatures. In all these applications, the security of the smart cards is of crucial importance. Power Analysis Attacks: Revealing the Secrets of Smart Cards is the first comprehensive treatment of power analysis attacks and countermeasures. Based on the principle that the only way to defend against power analysis attacks is to understand them, this book explains how power analysis attacks work. Using many examples, it discusses simple and differential power analysis as well as advanced techniques like template attacks. Furthermore, the authors provide an extensive discussion of countermeasures like shuffling, masking, and DPA-resistant logic styles. By analyzing the pros and cons of the different countermeasures, this volume allows practitioners to decide how to protect smart cards.
Analysis of Real-World Security Protocols in a Universal Composability Framework Max Tuengerthal 2013-08-05 Security protocols employed in practice are used in our everyday life and we heavily depend on their security. The complexity of these protocols still poses a big challenge on their comprehensive analysis. To cope with this complexity, a promising approach is modular security analysis based on universal composability frameworks, such as Canetti's UC model. This appealing approach has, however, only very rarely been applied to the analysis of (existing) real-world protocols. Either the analysis was not fully modular or it could only be applied to idealized variants of the protocols. The main goal of this thesis therefore is to push modular protocol analysis as far as possible, but without giving up on accurate modeling. Our main contributions in a nutshell: An ideal functionality for symmetric key cryptography that provides a solid foundation for faithful, composable cryptographic analysis of real-world security protocols. A computational soundness result of formal analysis for key exchange protocols that use symmetric encryption. Novel universal and joint state composition theorems that are applicable to the analysis of real-world security protocols. Case studies on several security protocols: SSL/TLS, IEEE 802.11i (WPA2), SSH, IPsec, and EAP-PSK. We showed that our new composition theorems can be used for a faithful, modular analysis of these protocols. In addition, we proved composable security properties for two central protocols of the IEEE standard 802.11i, namely the 4-Way Handshake Protocol and the CCM Protocol. This constitutes the first rigorous cryptographic analysis of these protocols. While our applications focus on real-world security protocols, our theorems, models, and techniques should be useful beyond this domain.
Public Key Cryptography - PKC 2003 Fla.) International Workshop on Practice and Theory in Public Key Cryptography (6th : 2003 : Miami 2002-12-13 PKC 2003 was the Sixth International Workshop on Practice and Theory in Public Key Cryptography and was sponsored by IACR, the International As- ciation for Cryptologic Research (www.iacr.org). This year the workshop was organized in cooperation with the Department of Computer Science, Florida State University. The General Chair, Mike Burmester was responsible for local organization, registration, etc. There were 105 submitted papers which were considered by the Program Committee. This is an increase of 52% compared to PKC 2002, which took place in Paris, France, February 2002, and which was incorrectly identi?ed on the cover of the proceedings as being the fourth workshop. Due to the large number of submissions, some papers that contained new ideas had to be rejected. Priority was given to novel papers. Of the 105 submissions, 26 were selected for the proceedings. These contain the revised versions of the accepted papers. Each paper was sent to at least 3 members of the program committee for comments. Revisions were not checked for correctness of their scienti?c aspects and the authors bear full responsibility for the contents of their papers. Some authors will write ?nal versions of their papers for publication in refereed journals. I am very grateful to the members of the Program Committee for their hard work in the di?cult task of selecting roughly 1 out of 4 of the submitted papers.

Transparent User Authentication Nathan Clarke 2011-08-17 This groundbreaking text examines the problem of user authentication from a completely new viewpoint. Rather than describing the requirements, technologies and implementation issues of designing point-of-entry authentication, the book introduces and investigates the technological requirements of implementing transparent user authentication – where authentication credentials are captured during a user’s normal interaction with a system. This approach would transform user authentication from a binary point-of-entry decision to a continuous identity confidence measure. Topics and features: discusses the need for user authentication; reviews existing authentication approaches; introduces novel behavioural biometrics techniques; examines the wider system-specific issues with designing large-scale multimodal authentication systems; concludes with a look to the future of user authentication.
