DNA cryptography becomes a burgeoning new area of study along with the fast-developing of DNA computing and modern cryptography. Point-doubling, point-addition and point-multiplication are three fundamental point-operations to construct encryption protocols in some cryptosystem over mathematical curves such as elliptic curves and conic curves. This paper proposes a DNA computing model to calculate point-doubling in conic curves cryptosystem over finite held GF(2n). By decomposing and rearranging the computing steps of point-doubling, the assembly process could be fulfilled by using 8 different types of computation tiles performing different functions with 1097 encoding ways. This model could also figure out point-multiplication if its coefficient is 2k. The assembly time complexity is 2kn+n-k-1, and the space complexity is k2n2+kn2-k2n.

Forward secure proxy signature (FoSPS) solves the security drawback of private key exposure problem of generating the private key of each time interval. Directed signature scheme solves the public signature verification problem in traditional digital signature by designating the constant one as the signature verifier. Due to excellent properties, the two signature schemes have attracted the research of many experts. Recently, based on the Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC), a new FoSPS scheme and directed signature scheme were proposed. In this paper, we analyze the two schemes and present which the either of both schemes is insecure and do not satisfy the unforgeability. In other words, anyone is able to forge a valid signature but the one does not know the signer's secret key. In the same time, we give the main reasons why the enemy is able to forge the signature by analyzing the two schemes respectively. And we also present a simple improvement idea to overcome existing problems without adding extra computational cost which can make them applied in some environments such as e-medical information system.

Cloud computing is a technology is where client require not to stress over the expense of equipment establishment and their support cost. Distributed computing is presently turned out to be most prominent innovation on account of its accessibility, ease and some different elements. Yet, there is a few issues in distributed computing, the principle one is security in light of the fact that each client store their valuable information on the system so they need their information ought to be shielded from any unapproved get to, any progressions that isn't done for client's benefit. To take care of the issue of Key administration, Key Sharing different plans have been proposed. The outsider examiner is the plan for key administration and key sharing. The primary preferred standpoint of this is the cloud supplier can encourage the administration which was accessible by the customary outsider evaluator and make it trustful. The outsider examining plan will be fizzled, if the outsider's security is endangered or of the outsider will be malignant. To take care of the issue, there is another modular for key sharing and key administration in completely Homomorphic Encryption conspire is outlined. In this paper we utilized the symmetric key understanding calculation named Diffie Hellman to make session key between two gatherings who need to impart and elliptic curve cryptography to create encryption keys rather than RSA and have utilized One Time Password (OTP) for confirming the clients.

Takahashi, Akira, Tibouchi, Mehdi.  2019.  Degenerate Fault Attacks on Elliptic Curve Parameters in OpenSSL. 2019 IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS P). :371–386.
In this paper, we describe several practically exploitable fault attacks against OpenSSL's implementation of elliptic curve cryptography, related to the singular curve point decompression attacks of Blömer and Günther (FDTC2015) and the degenerate curve attacks of Neves and Tibouchi (PKC 2016). In particular, we show that OpenSSL allows to construct EC key files containing explicit curve parameters with a compressed base point. A simple single fault injection upon loading such a file yields a full key recovery attack when the key file is used for signing with ECDSA, and a complete recovery of the plaintext when the file is used for encryption using an algorithm like ECIES. The attack is especially devastating against curves with j-invariant equal to 0 such as the Bitcoin curve secp256k1, for which key recovery reduces to a single division in the base field. Additionally, we apply the present fault attack technique to OpenSSL's implementation of ECDH, by combining it with Neves and Tibouchi's degenerate curve attack. This version of the attack applies to usual named curve parameters with nonzero j-invariant, such as P192 and P256. Although it is typically more computationally expensive than the one against signatures and encryption, and requires multiple faulty outputs from the server, it can recover the entire static secret key of the server even in the presence of point validation. These various attacks can be mounted with only a single instruction skipping fault, and therefore can be easily injected using low-cost voltage glitches on embedded devices. We validated them in practice using concrete fault injection experiments on a Rapsberry Pi single board computer running the up to date OpenSSL command line tools-a setting where the threat of fault attacks is quite significant.

In Ad hoc networks the main purpose is communication without infrastructure and there are many implementations already done on that. There is little effort done for security to prevent threats in ad hoc networks (like MANETs). It is already proven that; there is no any centralized mechanism for defence against threats, such as a firewall, an intrusion detection system, or a proxy in ad hoc networks. Ad hoc networks are very convenient due to its features like self-maintenance, self-organizing and providing wireless communication. In Ad hoc networks there is no fixed infrastructure in which every node works like simply a router which stores and forwards packet to final destination. Due to these dynamic topology features, Ad hoc networks are anywhere, anytime. Therefore, it is necessary to make a secure mechanism for the ad hoc components so that with flexibility they have that security also. This paper shows the secure and flexible implementation about to protect any ad hoc networks. This proposed system design is perfect solution to provide security with flexibility by providing a hybrid system which combines ECC and MAES to detect and prevent Ad hoc network attacks using Intrusion detection system. The complete proposed system designed on NS 2.35 software using Ubuntu (Linux) OS.

Digital signatures are replacing paper-based work to make life easier for customers and employees in various industries. We rigorously use RSA and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for public key cryptographic algorithms. Nowadays ECDSA (Elliptical Curve Digital Signature Algorithm) gaining more popularity than the RSA algorithm because of the better performance of ECDSA over RSA. The main advantage of ECC over RSA is ECC provides the same level of security with less key size and overhead than RSA. This paper focuses on a brief review of the performance of ECDSA and RSA in various aspects like time, security and power. This review tells us about why ECC has become the latest trend in the present cryptographic scenario.

In this time of ubiquitous computing and the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT), the deployment and development of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is becoming more extensive. Proving the simultaneous presence of a group of RFID tagged objects is a practical need in many application areas within the IoT domain. Security, privacy, and efficiency are central issues when designing such a grouping-proof protocol. This work is motivated by our serial-dependent and Sundaresan et al.'s grouping-proof protocols. In this paper, we propose a light, improved offline protocol: parallel-dependency grouping-proof protocol (PDGPP). The protocol focuses on security, privacy, and efficiency. PDGPP tackles the challenges of including robust privacy mechanisms and accommodates missing tags. It is scalable and complies with EPC C1G2.

User authentication in wireless sensor networks is more complex than normal networks due to sensor network characteristics such as unmanned operation, limited resources, and unreliable communication. For this reason, various authentication protocols have been presented to provide secure and efficient communication. In 2017, Wu et al. presented a provable and privacy-preserving user authentication protocol for wireless sensor networks. Unfortunately, we found that Wu et al.'s protocol was still vulnerable against user impersonation attack, and had a problem in the password change phase. We show how an attacker can impersonate an other user and why the password change phase is ineffective.

Dependency on cloud computing are increasing day by day due to its beneficial aspects. As day by day we are relying on cloud computing, the securities issues are coming up. There are lots of security protocols but now-a-days those protocol are not secured enough to provide a high security. One of those protocols which were once highly secured, is Kerberos authentication protocol. With the advancement of technology, Kerberos authentication protocol is no longer as secured as it was before. Many authors have thought about the improvement of Kerberos authentication protocol and consequently they have proposed different types of protocol models by using a renowned public key cryptography named RSA cryptography. Though RSA cryptography is good to some extent but this cryptography has some flaws that make this cryptography less secured as well as less efficient. In this paper, we are combining Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) as well as Threshold Cryptography to create a new version of Kerberos authentication protocol. Our proposed model will provide secure transaction of data which will not only be hard to break but also increase memory efficiency, cost efficiency, and reduce the burden of computation.

Dey, H., Islam, R., Arif, H..  2019.  An Integrated Model To Make Cloud Authentication And Multi-Tenancy More Secure. 2019 International Conference on Robotics,Electrical and Signal Processing Techniques (ICREST). :502–506.

Cloud Computing is an important term of modern technology. The usefulness of Cloud is increasing day by day and simultaneously more and more security problems are arising as well. Two of the major threats of Cloud are improper authentication and multi-tenancy. According to the specialists both pros and cons belong to multi-tenancy. There are security protocols available but it is difficult to claim these protocols are perfect and ensure complete protection. The purpose of this paper is to propose an integrated model to ensure better Cloud security for Authentication and multi-tenancy. Multi-tenancy means sharing of resources and virtualization among clients. Since multi-tenancy allows multiple users to access same resources simultaneously, there is high probability of accessing confidential data without proper privileges. Our model includes Kerberos authentication protocol to enhance authentication security. During our research on Kerberos we have found some flaws in terms of encryption method which have been mentioned in couple of IEEE conference papers. Pondering about this complication we have elected Elliptic Curve Cryptography. On the other hand, to attenuate arose risks due to multi-tenancy we are proposing a Resource Allocation Manager Unit, a Control Database and Resource Allocation Map. This part of the model will perpetuate resource allocation for the users.

The paper deals with the implementation aspects of the bilinear pairing operation over an elliptic curve on constrained devices, such as smart cards, embedded devices, smart meters and similar devices. Although cryptographic constructions, such as group signatures, anonymous credentials or identity-based encryption schemes, often rely on the pairing operation, the implementation of such schemes into practical applications is not straightforward, in fact, it may become very difficult. In this paper, we show that the implementation is difficult not only due to the high computational complexity, but also due to the lack of cryptographic libraries and programming interfaces. In particular, we show how difficult it is to implement pairing-based schemes on constrained devices and show the performance of various libraries on different platforms. Furthermore, we show the performance estimates of fundamental cryptographic constructions, the group signatures. The purpose of this paper is to reduce the gap between the cryptographic designers and developers and give performance results that can be used for the estimation of the implementability and performance of novel, upcoming schemes.

In this paper, we consider ways of organizing group authentication, as well as the features of constructing the isogeny of elliptic curves. The work includes the study of isogeny graphs and their application in postquantum systems. A hierarchical group authentication scheme has been developed using transformations based on the search for isogeny of elliptic curves.

Blum-Blum-Shub (BBS) is a less complex pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) that requires very large modulus and a squaring operation for the generation of each bit, which makes it computationally heavy and slow. On the other hand, the concept of elliptic curve (EC) point operations has been extended to PRNGs that prove to have good randomness properties and reduced latency, but exhibit dependence on the secrecy of point P. Given these pros and cons, this paper proposes a new BBS-ECPRNG approach such that the modulus is the product of two elliptic curve points, both primes of length, and the number of bits extracted per iteration is by binary fraction. We evaluate the algorithm performance by generating 1000 distinct sequences of 106bits each. The results were analyzed based on the overall performance of the sequences using the NIST standard statistical test suite. The average performance of the sequences was observed to be above the minimum confidence level of 99.7 percent and successfully passed all the statistical properties of randomness tests.

We survey elliptic curve implementations from several vantage points. We perform internet-wide scans for TLS on a large number of ports, as well as SSH and IPsec to measure elliptic curve support and implementation behaviors, and collect passive measurements of client curve support for TLS. We also perform active measurements to estimate server vulnerability to known attacks against elliptic curve implementations, including support for weak curves, invalid curve attacks, and curve twist attacks. We estimate that 1.53% of HTTPS hosts, 0.04% of SSH hosts, and 4.04% of IKEv2 hosts that support elliptic curves do not perform curve validity checks as specified in elliptic curve standards. We describe how such vulnerabilities could be used to construct an elliptic curve parameter downgrade attack called CurveSwap for TLS, and observe that there do not appear to be combinations of weak behaviors we examined enabling a feasible CurveSwap attack in the wild. We also analyze source code for elliptic curve implementations, and find that a number of libraries fail to perform point validation for JSON Web Encryption, and find a flaw in the Java and NSS multiplication algorithms.

Urbanik, David, Jao, David.  2018.  SoK: The Problem Landscape of SIDH. Proceedings of the 5th ACM on ASIA Public-Key Cryptography Workshop. :53–60.
The Supersingular Isogeny Diffie-Hellman protocol (SIDH) has recently been the subject of increased attention in the cryptography community. Conjecturally quantum-resistant, SIDH has the feature that it shares the same data flow as ordinary Diffie-Hellman: two parties exchange a pair of public keys, each generated from a private key, and combine them to form a shared secret. To create a potentially quantum-resistant scheme, SIDH depends on a new family of computational assumptions involving isogenies between supersingular elliptic curves which replace both the discrete logarithm problem and the computational and decisional Diffie-Hellman problems. As in the case of ordinary Diffie-Hellman, one is interested in knowing if these problems are related. In fact, more is true: there is a rich network of reductions between the isogeny problems securing the private keys of the participants in the SIDH protocol, the computational and decisional SIDH problems, and the problem of validating SIDH public keys. In this article we explain these relationships, which do not appear elsewhere in the literature, in hopes of providing a clearer picture of the SIDH problem landscape to the cryptography community at large.
Gu, Hongxiang, Potkonjak, Miodrag.  2018.  Efficient and Secure Group Key Management in IoT Using Multistage Interconnected PUF. Proceedings of the International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design. :8:1–8:6.
Secure group-oriented communication is crucial to a wide range of applications in Internet of Things (IoT). Security problems related to group-oriented communications in IoT-based applications placed in a privacy-sensitive environment have become a major concern along with the development of the technology. Unfortunately, many IoT devices are designed to be portable and light-weight; thus, their functionalities, including security modules, are heavily constrained by the limited energy resources (e.g., battery capacity). To address these problems, we propose a group key management scheme based on a novel physically unclonable function (PUF) design: multistage interconnected PUF (MIPUF) to secure group communications in an energy-constrained environment. Our design is capable of performing key management tasks such as key distribution, key storage and rekeying securely and efficiently. We show that our design is secure against multiple attack methods and our experimental results show that our design saves 47.33% of energy globally comparing to state-of-the-art Elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC)-based key management scheme on average.

With the rapid development of mobile communication technologies, more and more mobile users use their mobile devices anywhere. Therefore, it is important to provide authentication process in three parties, i.e., a mobile user (MU), a home agent (HA), and a foreign agent (FA). In 2016, Reddy et al. proposed a secure and anonymous mobile authentication scheme. In their scheme, they first pointed out that Memon et al.'s scheme suffer from four secure issues, i.e., the impersonation attack, imperfect mutual authentication, unverifiable password changing phase, and the insider attack. Then, the authors proposed an improved scheme and claimed that their scheme can provide user anonymity and resist most famous attacks. Unfortunately, we have found that their scheme cannot resist known session-specific temporary information attack (KSTIA). In addition, when HA wants to charge MU fees for providing service, or, as FA and MU have argued, HA cannot find the real identity of MU. Finally, their scheme cannot achieve the mutual authentication and the session key agreement. Therefore, in this paper, we presented those weaknesses of Reddy et al.'s scheme.

Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) is an approach to public-key cryptography used for data protection to be unintelligible to any unauthorized device or entity. The encryption/decryption algorithm is publicly known and its security relies on the discrete logarithm problem. ECC is ideal for weak devices with small resources such as phones, smart cards, embedded systems and wireless sensor networks (WSN), largely deployed in different applications. The advantage of ECC is the shorter key length to provide same level of security than other cryptosystems like RSA. However, cryptographic computations such as the multiplication of an elliptic curve point by a scalar value are computationally expensive and involve point additions and doublings on elliptic curves over finite fields. Much works are done to optimize their costs. Based on the result of these works, including parallel processing, we propose two new efficient distributed algorithms to reduce the computations in resource-constrained networks having as feature the cooperative processing of data. Our results are conclusive and can provide up to 125% of reduction of consumed energy by each device in a data exchange operation.
Luo, Chao, Fei, Yunsi, Kaeli, David.  2018.  Effective Simple-power Analysis Attacks of Elliptic Curve Cryptography on Embedded Systems. Proceedings of the International Conference on Computer-Aided Design. :115:1–115:7.
Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), initially proposed by Koblitz [17] and Miller [20], is a public-key cipher. Compared with other popular public-key ciphers (e.g., RSA), ECC features a shorter key length for the same level of security. For example, a 256-bit ECC cipher provides 128-bit security, equivalent to a 2048-bit RSA cipher [4]. Using smaller keys, ECC requires less memory for performing cryptographic operations. Embedded systems, especially given the proliferation of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices and platforms, require efficient and low-power secure communications between edge devices and gateways/clouds. ECC has been widely adopted in IoT systems for authentication of communications, while RSA, which is much more costly to compute, remains the standard for desktops and servers.
Dong, Xiuze, Zhang, Li, Gao, Xianwei.  2018.  An Efficient FPGA Implementation of ECC Modular Inversion over F256. Proceedings of the 2Nd International Conference on Cryptography, Security and Privacy. :29–33.
Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) provides high security levels with shorter keys than other public-key cryptosystems such as RSA. Usually modular inversion operation is a choke point in realizing the public-key cryptosystem. Based on the Extended Euclidean Algorithm, this work proposes an efficient FPGA implementation of ECC modular inversion over F256. According to this proposed algorithm, one modular inversion requires 320 clock cycles with a maximum clock frequency of 144.011MHz on a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA device which gives a computation time of 2.22μs. On the other words, our scenario can perform 450 thousand times division operations in one second approximately. Compared to other available literature, our scheme presented in this paper provides a high performance FPGA implementation of 256-bit modular inversion over F256. This makes the elliptic curve cryptography have important practical value in hardware implementation.

In this paper, the literature survey of different algorithms for generating encryption keys using fingerprints is presented. The focus is on fingerprint features called minutiae points where fingerprint ridges end or bifurcate. Minutiae points require less memory and are processed faster than other fingerprint features. In addition, presented is the proposed efficient method for cryptographic key generation using finger-codes. The results show that the length of the key, computing time and the memory it requires is efficient for use as a biometric key or even as a password during verification and authentication.

The use of real-time video streaming is increasing day-by-day, and its security has become a serious issue now. Video encryption is a challenging task because of its large frame size. Video encryption can be done with symmetric key as well as asymmetric key encryption. Among different asymmetric key encryption technique, ECC performs better than other algorithms like RSA in terms of smaller key size and faster encryption and decryption operation. In this work, we have analyzed the performance of 18 different ECC curves and suggested some suitable curves for real-time video encryption.

Cryptography is a widespread technique that maintains information security over insecure networks. The symmetric encryption scheme provides a good security, but the key exchange is difficult on the other hand, in the asymmetric encryption scheme, key management is easier, but it does not offer the same degree of security compared to symmetric scheme. A hybrid cryptosystem merges the easiness of the asymmetric schemes key distribution and the high security of symmetric schemes. In the proposed hybrid cryptosystem, Serpent algorithm is used as a data encapsulation scheme and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is used as a key encapsulation scheme to achieve key generation and distribution within an insecure channel. This modification is done to tackle the issue of key management for Serpent algorithm, so it can be securely used in multimedia protection.

Liao, Y., Zhou, J., Yang, Y., Ruan, O..  2018.  An Efficient Oblivious Transfer Protocol with Access Control. 2018 13th Asia Joint Conference on Information Security (AsiaJCIS). :29–34.

Due to the rapid development of internet in our daily life, protecting privacy has become a focus of attention. To create privacy-preserving database and prevent illegal user access the database, oblivious transfer with access control (OTAC) was proposed, which is a cryptographic primitive that extends from oblivious transfer (OT). It allows a user to anonymously query a database where each message is protected by an access control policy and only if the user' s attribute satisfy that access control policy can obtain it. In this paper, we propose a new protocol for OTAC by using elliptic curve cryptography, which is more efficient compared to the existing similar protocols. In our scheme, we also preserves user's anonymity and ensures that the user's attribute is not disclosed to the sender. Additionally, our construction guarantees the user to verify the correctness of messages recovered at the end of each transfer phase.
