eSTREAM called for new stream ciphers designed for niche areas such as exceptional performance in software and hardware where resources are restricted. This project provides an open platform to discuss these ciphers. Trivium is one of the promising new ciphers submitted to it. Until now, no attack has been successfully applied to it. This paper illustrates… (More)
Escrowable identity-based authenticated key agreement (AKA) protocols are desirable under certain circumstances especially in certain closed groups applications. In this paper, we focus on two-party identitybased AKA schemes in the escrow mode, and present a strongly secure escrowable identity-based AKA protocol which captures all basic desirable security… (More)
Asymmetric resonant cavities with highly noncircular but convex cross sections are predicted theoretically to have high-Q whispering gallery modes with highly anisotropic emission. We develop a ray dynamics model for the emission pattern and present numerical and experimental confirmation of the theory.
It is proposed that the spoiling of high Q whispering gallery modes in deformed dielectric spheres can be understood as a transition to chaotic ray dynamics which can no longer be confined by total internal reflection. This is a KAM/Lazutkin transition for light. The theory is applied to explain the lasing properties of droplets. The highest Q optical… (More)
In a directed signature scheme, a verifier can exclusively verify the signatures designated to himself, and shares with the signer the ability to prove correctness of the signature to a third party when necessary. Directed signature schemes are suitable for applications such as bill of tax and bill of health. This paper studies directed signatures in the… (More)
