Secret Handshakes with Dynamic and Fuzzy Matching
The need for communication privacy over public networks is of growing concern in today’s society. As a result, privacy-preserving authentication and key exchange protocols have become critical primitives in building secure distributed systems. Secret handshakes provide such a service by allowing two members of the same group to secretly and privately authenticate to each other and agree on a shared key for further communication. This paper presents the first efficient secret handshake schemes with unlinkable, reusable credentials that do not rely on random oracles for their security (solving open problems from prior literature). In previous work, secret handshakes were extended with roles, so that a group member A can specify the role another group member B must have in order to successfully complete the protocol with A. We generalize the traditional and role-based secret handshake in two ways. First, we present a secret handshake with dynamic matching, in which each party can spe...
