Sensor networks are composed of a large number of low power sensor devices. For secure communication among sensors, secret keys must be established between them. Recently, several pairwise key schemes have been proposed for large distributed sensor networks. These schemes randomly select a set of keys from a key pool and install the keys in the memory of(More)
The cryptographic properties of third-order linear feedback shift-register (LFSR) sequences over GF (p) are investigated. A fast computational algorithm for evaluating the kth term of a characteristic sequence of order 3 is presented. Based on these properties, a new public-key distribution scheme and an RSA-type encryption algorithm are proposed. Their(More)
In 1982, and Taylor proposed an elegant solution to rhe partially ordered multilevel key distribution problem, using a cryptographic approach. Since then, continuing research has been conducred to try to realize and simplify their scheme. Generally speaking, there are two problems associated with their scheme. First, a large value associated with each(More)
In a (t, n) secret sharing scheme, a secret s is divided into n shares and shared among a set of n shareholders by a mutually trusted dealer in such a way that any t or more than t shares will be able to reconstruct this secret; but fewer than t shares cannot know any information about the secret. When shareholders present their shares in the secret(More)
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a series of security standards under Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS). Standard for key agreement is still missing in the current standards. Arazi proposed integrating Diffie–Hellman (DH) key exchange into the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA). However, the protocol was(More)
The security of the current 3G wireless protocols addresses the problems faced by the 2G systems, in addition to fulfilling the higher 3G security requirements mandated from operating in IP networks as well as voice networks. However, the approach adopted by the two most popular 3G mobile system forerunners, UMTS and cdma2000, leaves many areas for(More)
Recently, Wang introduced a novel (2, n) region incrementing visual cryptographic scheme (RIVCS), which can gradually reconstruct secrets in a single image with multiple security levels. In RIVCS, the secret image is subdivided into multiple regions in such a way that any t shadow images, where 2 ≤ t ≤ n, can be used to reveal the (t − 1)th region. However,(More)
