Chapter 10 Secure Robust Hash Functions and Their Applications in Non-Interactive Communications 1. A robust hash function allows different parties to extract a consistent key from a common fuzzy source, e.g., an image gone through noisy channels , which can then be used to establish a cryptographic session key among the parties without the need for interactions. 2. These functions are useful in various communication scenarios, where the security notions are different. 3. The authors study these different security notions in this paper and focus on forgery attacks, where the objective of the attack is to compute the extracted key (hash value) of a given message. 4. This paper will examine information -theoretical security against forgery under chosen message attacks. 5. The authors prove that it is not possible due to the entropy of the hash value of a given message can be reduced arbitrarily when sufficient message/hash pairs have been observed.

    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.
