The problem of password-authenticated key exchange (PAKE) has been extensively studied for the last two decades. Despite extensive studies, no construction was known for a PAKE protocol that is secure in the plain model in the setting of concurrent self-composition, where polynomially many protocol sessions with the same password may be executed on the distributed network (such as the Internet) in an arbitrarily interleaved manner, and where the adversary may corrupt any number of participating… CONTINUE READING
