A Simple Threshold Authenticated Key Exchange from Short Secrets

  title={A Simple Threshold Authenticated Key Exchange from Short Secrets},
  author={Michel Abdalla and Olivier Chevassut and Pierre-Alain Fouque and David Pointcheval},
This paper brings the password-based authenticated key exchange (PAKE) problem closer to practice. It takes into account the presence of firewalls when clients communicate with authentication servers. An authentication server can indeed be seen as two distinct entities, namely a gateway (which is the direct interlocutor of the client) and a back-end server (which is the only one able to check the identity of the client). The goal in this setting is to achieve both transparency and security for… CONTINUE READING
