Authentication theory and hypothesis testing

  title={Authentication theory and hypothesis testing},
  author={Ueli Maurer},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Information Theory},
By interpreting message authentication as a hypothesis testing problem, this paper provides a generalized treatment of information-theoretic lower bounds on an opponent's probability of cheating in one-way message authentication. We consider the authentication of an arbitrary sequence of messages, using the same secret key shared between sender and receiver. The adversary tries to deceive the receiver by forging one of the messages in the sequence. The classical two types of cheating are… CONTINUE READING
