Unformatted text preview: name, her random number, and a timestamp, and encrypts with the key he shares with Trent. He sends it to Trent along with his name and a new random number. B,RB,EB(A,RA,TB) (3) Trent generates a random session key. Then he creates two messages. The first is Bob’s name, Alice’s random number, a random session key, and the timestamp, all encrypted with the key he shares with Alice. The second is Alice’s name, the session key, and the timestamp, all encrypted with the key he shares with Bob. He sends these both to Alice, along with Bob’s random number. EA(B,RA,K,TB),EA(A,K,TB),RB (4) Alice decrypts the message encrypted with her key, extracts K, and confirms that RA has the same value as it did in step (1). Alice sends Bob two messages. The first is the message received from Trent, encrypted with Bob’s key. The second is RB, encrypted with the session key. EB(A,K,TB),EK(RB) (5) Bob decrypts the message encrypted with his key, extracts K, and confirms that TB and RB have the same value they did in step (2). Assuming both random numbers and the timestamp match, Alice and Bob are convinced of one another’s identity and share a secret key. Synchronized clocks are not required because the timestamp is only relative to Bob’s clock; Bob only checks the timestamp he generated himself. One nice thing about this protocol is that Alice can use the message she received from Trent for subsequent authentication with Bob, within some predetermined time limit. Assume that Alice and Bob completed the above protocol, communicated, and then terminated the connection. Alice and Bob can reauthenticate in three steps, without having to rely on Trent. (1) Alice sends Bob the message Trent sent her in step (3) and a new random number. EB(A,K,TB),R’A (2) Bob sends Alice another new random number, and Alice’s new random number encrypted in their session key. R’B,EK(R’A) (3) Alice sends Bob his new random number, encrypted in their session key. EK(R’B) The new random numbers prevent replay attacks. DASS The Distributed Authen...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
