Unformatted text preview: t password, P, and have just exchanged a secret key, K, using Diffie-Hellman key exchange. They use P to check that their two session keys are the same (and that Eve is not attempting a man-in-the-middle attack), without giving P away to Eve. (1) Alice sends Bob H´ (P, K) (2) Bob computes H´ (P, K) and compares his result with what he received from Alice. If they match he sends Alice H´(H(P, K)) (3) Alice computes H´ (H(P, K)) and compares her result with what she received from Bob. If Eve is trying a man-in-the-middle attack, she shares one key, K1, with Alice, and another key, K2, with Bob. To fool Bob in step (2), she has to figure out the shared password and then send Bob H´ * (P, K2). With a normal hash function she can try common passwords until she guesses the correct one, and then successfully infiltrate the protocol. But with this hash function, many passwords are likely to produce the same value when hashed with K1. So when she finds a match, she will probably have the wrong password, and hence Bob will not be fooled. 22.7 Conference Key Distribution and Secret Broadcasting Alice wants to broadcast a message, M, from a single transmitter. However, she doesn’t want it to be intelligible by every listener. In fact, she only wants a select subset of listeners to be able to recover M. Everyone else should get nonsense. Alice can share a different key (secret or public) with each listener. She encrypts the message in some random key, K. Then she encrypts a copy of K with each of the keys of her intended recipients. Finally, she broadcasts the encrypted message and then all of the encrypted Ks. Bob, who is listening, either tries to decrypt all the Ks with his secret key, looking for one that is correct, or, if Alice doesn’t mind everyone knowing who her message is for, he looks for his name followed by an encrypted key. Multiple-key cryptography, previously discussed, also works. Previous Table of Contents Next Products | Contact Us | About Us | Privacy | Ad Info | Home Use of...

    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.
