Abstract

One-way authenticated key agreement protocols, aiming at solving the problems to establish secure communications over public insecure networks, can achieve one-way authentication of communicating entities for giving a specific user strong anonymity and confidentiality of transmitted data. Public Key Infrastructure can design one-way authenticated key agreement protocols, but it will consume a large amount of computation. Because one-way authenticated key agreement protocols mainly concern on authentication and key agreement, we adopt multi-server architecture to realize these goals. About multi-server architecture, which allow the user to register at the registration center (RC) once and can access all the permitted services provided by the eligible servers. The combination of above-mentioned ideas can lead to a high-practical scheme in the universal client/server architecture. Based on these motivations, the paper firstly proposed a new one-way authenticated key agreement scheme based on multi-server architecture. Compared with the related literatures recently, our proposed scheme can not only own high efficiency and unique functionality, but is also robust to various attacks and achieves perfect forward secrecy. Finally, we give the security proof and the efficiency analysis of our proposed scheme.
