Authenticated Session Key Distribution Protocol with Zero-Knowledge
Authenticated session key distribution protocol is an important cryptographic technique in the secure communication areas. We present a new method for the authenticated exchange of messages in the three-party case, and abandon the idea of authentication which was finished with encryption and decryption in the Bellare-Rogaway model. Instead, the non-interactive zero-knowledge is applied to our protocol. We give an illumination for some important properties of security and depict a feasible idea of provably security with zero-knowledge.
