Off-line password-guessing attack to Peyravian-Jeffries's remote user authentication protocol

  title={Off-line password-guessing attack to Peyravian-Jeffries's remote user authentication protocol},
  author={Jorge Munilla and Alberto Peinado},
  journal={Computer Communications},
Recently, Peyravian and Jeffries [M. Peyravian, C. Jeffries, Secure remote user access over insecure networks, Computer Communications 29 (2006) 660–667] have proposed two set of protocols to perform remote user authentication and password change in a secure manner. The first set of protocols is based on hash functions, where no symmetric or asymmetric encryption scheme is applied. As Peyravian and Jeffries claim, these protocols suffer from an off-line password-guessing attack. They propose a… CONTINUE READING
