A secure distance-bounding protocol preserving the anonymity of the participants
Jean-Marc Robert , ÉTS Montréal

Area: Alumni Lecture


Distance-bounding protocols are one of the best tools to thwart relay attacks against authentication protocols. In this talk, our objective is twofold. First, present distance-bounding protocols based on the public-key cryptography model that are secure against the typical attacks against such protocols. However, our main objective is to develop a distance-bounding protocol that protects the identity of the legitimate participants. A participant should be able to prove his location at a given time without having to reveal his identity.
