    Efficient and concurrent reliable realization of the secure cryptographic SHA-3 algorithm

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems ; Vol. 33, issue. 7 , July , 2014 , p. 1105-1109 ; 0278-0070 Bayat-Sarmadi, S ; Mozaffari-Kermani, M ; Reyhani-Masoleh, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    The secure hash algorithm (SHA)-3 has been selected in 2012 and will be used to provide security to any application which requires hashing, pseudo-random number generation, and integrity checking. This algorithm has been selected based on various benchmarks such as security, performance, and complexity. In this paper, in order to provide reliable architectures for this algorithm, an efficient concurrent error detection scheme for the selected SHA-3 algorithm, i.e., Keccak, is proposed. To the best of our knowledge, effective countermeasures for potential reliability issues in the hardware implementations of this algorithm have not been presented to date. In proposing the error detection... 

    A secure and efficient authentication technique for vehicular Ad-Hoc networks

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology ; Volume 67, Issue 6 , 2018 , Pages 5409-5423 ; 00189545 (ISSN) Rajabzadeh Asaar, M ; Salmasizadeh, M ; Susilo, W ; Majidi, A ; Sharif University of Technology

    Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) are under active development, thanks in part to recent advances in wireless communication and networking technologies. The most fundamental part in VANETs is to enable message authentications between vehicles and roadside units. Message authentication using proxy vehicles has been proposed to reduce the computational overhead of roadside units significantly. In this message authentication scheme, proxy vehicles that verify multiple messages at the same time improve roadside units' efficiency. In this paper, first we show that the only proxy-based authentication scheme (PBAS) presented for this goal by Liu et al. cannot guarantee message authenticity, and... 

    Lightweight secure IP address auto-configuration based on VASM

    , Article Proceedings - International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications, AINA, 26 May 2009 through 29 May 2009, Bradford ; 2009 , Pages 176-180 ; 1550445X (ISSN); 9780769536392 (ISBN) Tajamolian, M ; Taghiloo, M ; Tajamolian, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Mobile ad hoc networks allow to create very dynamic communication systems, which are independent from any fixed infrastructure. One of the most important issues regarding the management of an ad hoc network is the configuration of the system according to the way users move. Since a centralized control structure does not exist, we need to determine how the IP addresses must be assigned to the nodes in the network. In this paper we add a security mechanism to VASM protocol based on zero knowledge approach. A hash function has very low running time. So this so this scheme is very light-weight. The VASM protocol uses coordinate value of point in main address sheet for generating addresses. The... 

    A lightweight anonymous authentication protocol for IoT wireless sensor networks

    Lightweight authentication protocols are crucial for privacy preserving in Internet of Things (IoT). Authentication protocols should be implementable for devices with constrained memory and computational power in this area, in addition to resistance against cryptographic threats. On the other hand, these protocols should not impose a heavy computational load on such devices. In this paper we proposed an authentication protocol that properly meets these features. Our protocol is suitable for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In this protocol, authentication is fulfilled with low communication and computational loads between sensors and users through the gateway interface using a hash function... 

    Breaking anonymity of some recent lightweight RFID authentication protocols

    , Article Wireless Networks ; Volume 25, Issue 3 , 2019 , Pages 1235-1252 ; 10220038 (ISSN) Baghery, K ; Abdolmaleki, B ; Khazaei, S ; Aref, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology

    Due to their impressive advantages, Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) systems are ubiquitously found in various novel applications. These applications are usually in need of quick and accurate authentication or identification. In many cases, it has been shown that if such systems are not properly designed, an adversary can cause security and privacy concerns for end-users. In order to deal with these concerns, impressive endeavors have been made which have resulted in various RFID authentications being proposed. In this study, we analyze three lightweight RFID authentication protocols proposed in Wireless Personal Communications (2014), Computers & Security (2015) and Wireless Networks... 

    FLMAP: A fast lightweight mutual authentication protocol for RFID systems

    , Article 2008 16th International Conference on Networks, ICON 2008, New Delhi, 12 December 2008 through 14 December 2008 ; February , 2008 ; 9781424438051 (ISBN) Sadighian, A ; Jalili, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    Numerous authentication protocols for RFID systems were proposed as attempt to prevent unauthorized tracking and monitoring, impersonation or cloning, and information leakage. Many of such attempts cannot establish essential requirements that one robust authentication protocol must guarantee. In this paper, we propose a rapid mutual authentication protocol, called FLMAP, that overcomes all the drawbacks of previously proposed protocols. Our protocol has three passes and it does not use any cryptographic primitives such as hash functions and encryption algorithms; it is very fast and efficient. Significant characteristics of the protocol are forward security, tag anonymity, location privacy,...
