On Protocols for Information Security Services

Jena, Debasish (2010) On Protocols for Information Security Services. PhD thesis.



Now-a-days, organizations are becoming more and more dependent on their information systems due to the availability of high technology environment.Information is also treated as vital like other important assets of an organization. Thus, we require Information Security Services (ISS) protocols to protect this commodity. In this thesis, investigations have been made to protect information by developing some ISS protocols. We proposed a key management protocol, which stores one-way hash of the password at the server, instead of storing plaintext version of password.Every host and server agrees upon family of commutative one-way hash functions. Due to this prevention mechanism, online and offline guessing attacks are defeated. The protocol provides host authentication. As a result, man-in-the-middle attack is averted. It also withstands malicious insider attack.
