Key Use Agreement


The initial and still most famous protocol of the key agreement was proposed by Diffie and Hellman (see the key agreement Diffie Hellman) as well as their concept of public key cryptography. In principle, users send the Alice and Bob Public Key values through an uncertain channel. Based on the knowledge of their corresponding private keys, they are able to calculate a common key value correctly and securely. However, an earpiece is not able to calculate this key in the same way by simply knowing the. Authenticated key protocols require the separate setting of a password (which can be smaller than a key) in a way that is both private and integrity. These are designed to withstand man-in-the-middle attacks and other active attacks against the password and established keys. For example, DH-EKE, SPEKE, and SRP are authenticated variations of Diffie-Hellman. A large number of cryptographic authentication schemes and protocols have been developed to provide key authenticated agreements to prevent man-in-the-middle and related attacks. These methods usually mathematically link the agreed key to other agreed data, such as for example. B: Exponential key exchange does not in itself specify prior agreement or ex-post authentication between participants.

It has therefore been described as an anonymous key memorandum of understanding. The first publicly known public key memorandum of understanding[1] that meets the above criteria was the Diffie-Hellman key exchange, in which two parties together expose a random generator in such a way that a listener cannot determine in a feasible way what is the resulting value used to make a common key. The key agreement is a form of key exchange (see also the encryption key) in which two or more users execute a protocol to securely share a resulting key value. A key transport protocol can be used as an alternative to the key agreement. The distinguishing feature of a key MOU is that participating users each contribute an equal share to the calculation of the resulting common key value (unlike a user who distributes a key value to other users). In cryptography, a key memorandum of understanding is a protocol in which two or more parties can agree on a key in such a way that both influence the outcome. If properly implemented, it prevents unwanted third parties from imposing an important choice on the parties. Protocols that are useful in practice also do not reveal to any wiretapped party which key has been agreed. Many key exchange systems allow one party to generate the key and send that key simply to the other party – the other party has no influence on the key. Using a key-agreement protocol avoids some key distribution issues related to these systems.

Secret key (symmetric) cryptography requires the initial exchange of a common key in a private and integrity manner. If done correctly, a man-in-the-middle attack will be avoided. However, without the use of public key cryptography, key management issues can occur. Hybrid systems use public key cryptography to exchange secret keys that are then used in cryptography systems with symmetric keys. Most practical applications of cryptography use a combination of cryptographic functions to implement a comprehensive system that offers the four desirable characteristics of secure communication (confidentiality, integrity, authentication, and ineligibility). . . .
