ABSTRACT

In 2010, Sood-Sarje-Singh proposed two dynamic ID-based remote user authentication schemes. The first scheme is a security improvement of Liao et al.'s scheme and the second scheme is a security improvement of Wang et al.'s scheme. In both cases, the authors claimed that their schemes can resist many attacks. However, we find that both schemes have security flaws. In addition, their schemes require a verification table and time-synchronization, making the schemes unfeasible and unsecured for electronic services. In order to remedy the security flaws of Sood et al.'s schemes, we propose a robust scheme which resists the well-known attacks and achieves all the desirable security goals.

Keywords: cryptanalysis, mutual authentication, network security, smart cards.

 

RESUMEN

En el año 2010, Sood-Sarje-Singh propusieron dos esquemas de autenticación de usuario remoto. El primer esquema presenta una mejora de seguridad sobre el esquema propuesto por Liao-Lee-Hwang en el año 2005, y el segundo esquema presenta una mejora de seguridad sobre el esquema propuesto por Wang-Liu-Xiao-Dan en el año 2009. En ambos casos, los autores claman que sus esquemas pueden resistir varios ataques. Sin embargo, nosotros hemos encontrado que ambos esquemas tienen deficiencias de seguridad. Además, los esquemas propuestos requieren de una tabla de verificación y sincronización de tiempo, haciendo a los esquemas imprácticos e inseguros para servicios electrónicos. Para remediar las deficiencias de seguridad presentadas en los esquemas propuestos por Sood-Sarje-Singh, nosotros proponemos un esquema robusto de seguridad que resiste los ataques más populares y consigue todas las metas de seguridad deseadas.
