Overview: This HP white paper investigates a number of issues related to identity based authenticated key agreement protocols in the Diffie-Hellman family enabled by the Weil or Tate pairings. These issues include how to make protocols efficient; to avoid key escrow by a Trust Authority (TA) that issues identity based private keys for users, and to allow users to use different TAs. The paper describes a few Authenticated Key agreement (AK) protocols and AK with Key Confirmation (AKC) protocols by modifying Smart?s AK protocol.
