Abstract

The bilinear pairing, also known as Weil pairing or Tate pairing, is widely used in cryptography and its properties help to construct cryptographic schemes for different applications in which the security of the transmitted data is a major concern. In remote login authentication schemes, there are two major requirements: i) proving the identity of a user and the server for legitimacy without exposing their private keys and ii) freedom for a user to choose and change his password (private key) efficiently. Most of the existing methods based on the bilinear property have some security breaches due to the lack of features and the design issues. In this paper, we develop a new scheme using the bilinear property of an elliptic point and the biometric characteristics. Our method provides many features along with three major goals. a) Checking the correctness of the password before sending the authentication message, which prevents the wastage of communication cost; b) Efficient password change phase in which the user is asked to give a new password after checking the correctness of the current password without involving the server; c) User anonymity - enforcing the suitability of our scheme for applications in which a user does not want to disclose his identity. We use BAN logic to ensure the mutual authentication and session key agreement properties. The paper provides informal security analysis to illustrate that our scheme resists all the security attacks. Furthermore, we use the AVISPA tool for formal security verification of our scheme.
