Abstract

Session initiation protocol (SIP) is a kind of powerful and common protocols applied for the voice over internet protocol. The security and efficiency are two urgent requirements and admired properties of SIP. Recently, Hamed et al. proposed an efficient authentication and key agreement scheme for SIP. However, we demonstrate that Hamed et al.’s scheme is vulnerable to de-synchronization attack and cannot provide anonymity for users. Furthermore, we propose an improved and efficient authentication and key agreement scheme by using elliptic curve cryptosystem. Besides, we prove that the proposed scheme is provably secure by using secure formal proof based on Burrows-Abadi-Needham logic. The comparison with the relevant schemes shows that our proposed scheme has lower computation costs and can provide stronger security.
