Protocols Using Shared Key Cryptography
The majority of protocols for key establishment and entity authentication that have been proposed in the literature concentrate on the case where there are exactly two users who wish to communicate or establish a session key. This is commonly referred to as the two-party case. In this chapter we discuss two-party key establishment and authentication protocols based on symmetric algorithms. The next chapter discusses two-party protocols using public key algorithms, while the multi-party case is covered in Chap. 6.
