Generalized bent functions and their relation to Maiorana-McFarland class

Lilya Budaghyan; Claude Carlet; Tor Helleseth; Alexander Kholosha 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory Proceedings, 2012

In this paper, most of the known infinite classes of generalized bent functions are analyzed for their relation to the completed Maiorana-McFarland class. This is done using the criterion based on second-order derivatives of a function. In particular, it is shown that, unlike in the binary case, not all quadratic bent functions are EA-equivalent to a function of the Maiorana- ...


A Novel NTT-Based Authentication Scheme for 10-GHz Quantum Key Distribution Systems

Baokang Zhao; Bo Liu; Chunqing Wu; Wanrong Yu; Jinshu Su; Ilsun You; Francesco Palmieri IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, 2016

The quantum key distribution (QKD) technology is achieving a growing interest in both the scientific and industrial communities. Based on principles of quantum mechanics, it can provide unconditional security in key exchanges over end-to-end communication channels. Information-theoretically secure (ITS) authentication, the compulsory procedure of QKD systems, avoids the man-in- the-middle attack during the security key generation. In this paper, we ...


PKC Based Broadcast Authentication using Signature Amortization for WSNs

Yongsheng Liu; Jie Li; Mohsen Guizani IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, 2012

In this paper, we propose a novel PKC based broadcast authentication scheme using signature amortization for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The proposed scheme exploits only one Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) ...

  • The Don

    Our hero is Turing, an interactive tutoring program and namesake (or virtual emanation?) of Alan Turing, World War II code breaker and father of computer science. In this unusual novel, Turing's idiosyncratic version of intellectual history from a computational point of view unfolds in tandem with the story of a love affair involving Ethel, a successful computer executive, Alexandros, a melancholy archaeologist, and Ian, a charismatic hacker. After Ethel (who shares her first name with Alan Turing's mother) abandons Alexandros following a sundrenched idyll on Corfu, Turing appears on Alexandros's computer screen to unfurl a tutorial on the history of ideas. He begins with the philosopher- mathematicians of ancient Greece -- "discourse, dialogue, argument, proof... can only thrive in an egalitarian society" -- and the Arab scholar in ninth- century Baghdad who invented algorithms; he moves on to many other topics, including cryptography and artificial intelligence, even economics and developmental biology. (These lessons are later critiqued amusingly and developed further in postings by a fictional newsgroup in the book's afterword.) As Turing's lectures progress, the lives of Alexandros, Ethel, and Ian converge in dramatic fashion, and the story takes us from Corfu to Hong Kong, from Athens to San Francisco -- and of course to the Internet, the disruptive technological and social force that emerges as the main locale and protagonist of the novel.Alternately pedagogical and romantic, Turing (A Novel about Computation) should appeal both to students and professionals who want a clear and entertaining account of the development of computation and to the general reader who enjoys novels of ideas.

  • Cryptography

    The field of cryptography has experienced an unprecedented development in the past decade and the contributors to this book have been in the forefront of these developments. In an information-intensive society, it is essential to devise means to accomplish, with information alone, every function that it has been possible to achieve in the past with documents, personal control, and legal protocols (secrecy, signatures, witnessing, dating, certification of receipt and/or origination). This volume focuses on all these needs, covering all aspects of the science of information integrity, with an emphasis on the cryptographic elements of the subject. In addition to being an introductory guide and survey of all the latest developments, this book provides the engineer and scientist with algorithms, protocols, and applications. Of interest to computer scientists, communications engineers, data management specialists, cryptographers, mathematicians, security specialists, network engineers.

  • TESLA-based Broadcast Authentication

    This chapter explores ways to use fast symmetric cryptography to protect vehicular communications, but without direct involvement of RSUs. It focuses on the timed efficient stream loss-tolerant authentication (TESLA) authentication protocol, which is commonly used in securing broadcast and multicast communication. In addition, since only a short message authentication code (MAC) tag is attached to each message, the extra message length and the bandwidth overhead due to the security mechanism can be significantly reduced. The chapter presents the design of a TESLA-based broadcast authentication scheme for vehicular communication, termed TSVC. It begins by providing a brief introduction to the techniques used here, which serve as the basis for the proposed scheme, and then presents the scheme. Finally, the chapter analyzes security through rigorous analysis and conducts performance evaluations through extensive simulation.
