|Security Verification of Key Exchange in Ciphertext-Policy Attribute Based Encryption
Protocol Verification - Attribute-based encryption (ABE) is an extension scheme of identity-based encryption and public-key encryption. It can achieve fine-grained access control and one-to-many encryption mode, suitable for practical applications. In addition to mathematical proofs, it is essential to verify its security properties using different protocols. This paper proposes two key exchange protocols to securely exchange the user secret keys in ABE. ProVerif is an automated cryptographic protocol verifier that we have used during protocol verification. We specifically aim to protect the confidentiality of the generated keys. The proposed protocols are formally analysed and their security property has been formally proved.
