In this paper we propose a distributed authentication service for Peer-to-Peer (P2P) based massively multiuser virtual environments. Such a service is necessary to provide security, e.g., preventing a user's account being stolen or the user being impersonated. We describe two variants of our authentication service. The first uses certificates and a central certification authority to ensure the validity of user-generated public keys. These keys are then used to sign messages sent by the users… CONTINUE READING
