Foundations of cryptography. Vol.2, Basic applications

Cryptography is worried with the conceptualization, definition, and development of computing structures that handle defense issues. The layout of cryptographic structures has to be in keeping with company foundations. construction at the simple instruments provided within the first quantity, this moment quantity of Foundations of Cryptography features a rigorous and systematic remedy of 3 simple purposes: Encryption, Signatures, and basic Cryptographic Protocols.

Key words: public key infiastructure, electronic payment system, secure network system 1. INTRODUCTION Issuing a certificate (including also a qualified certificate) for a public-key of any entity allows him or her the generation of electronic signatures. The electronic signatures are the proofs of signed documents authenticity and make the authentication of signing entity possible, but on other hand make many troubles for the signature recipient (and also the verifier of its authenticity). The signature verification procedure is computationally difficult and usually time consuming' and I They require the gathering of all needed public-key certificates and certificate revocation lists (CRL), which allow firstly to build the certification path leading fiom so called trusted point to verified signing entity certificate in mind, and then to verify the validity of each 48 Chapter 1 this is the reason why it should be expected, that this procedure will determine the main bounds in commercial using of electronic signatures.

Temporary Authenticated Dictionary is a structure for most recent revocations. This dictionary is constructed successively with Insert function calls. The new proof is calculated after each insertion. Each insertion may cause necessity of rebalancing of the whole structure. Only two functions: AuthSeur*chand Insert are called during whole lifetime of TAD structure. Self-balancing structures (for example based on Skip List or RBST) should be used for this dictionary. The key is a certificate serial number.

Unilateral authentication is based on the SASL mechanisms (both ISOIIEC 9798-3 authentication scheme [ZNYOl] and the one-time-password system [NEW98]). The purpose of this is to establish the authentication and to prove the identity of the user only. e. the user checks the state of hisher payments, performs operations based on a broker's module, activates/deactivates the PIU services, etc. 1) in a smart card with a crypto processor. Basic mutual authentication is used in an operational mode only.
