Comments on "An anonymous and self-verified mobile authentication with authenticated key agreement for large-scale wireless networks"

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In a recent paper (IEEE Trans. Wireless Commun.,

    vol. 9, no. 11, 2010), Chang and Tsai presented a self-verified

    mobile authentication scheme for large-scale wireless networks.

    In this letter, we show that there is a serious security flaw in the

    key delegation phase of the scheme: two colluding mobile users

    can retrieve the long-term secret key of their home server without

    performing any active attacks.We then present a suggestion to fix

    the problem without losing any features (such as high efficiency

    and scalability) of the original scheme.
