Cryptanalysis and Improvement of a Password-Based Authenticated Three-Party Key Exchange Protocol

Youngsook Lee
2014 International Journal of Security and Its Applications  
Protocols for password-based authenticated key exchange (PAKE) in the three-party setting must be designed to be secure against dictionary attacks even in the presence of a malicious insider.  ...  We propose an improved three-party PAKE protocol which is resistant to all classes of dictionary attacks, including insider offline dictionary attacks and undetectable online dictionary attacks.  ...  Although Kim and Choi's protocol may be secure against undetectable online dictionary attacks, we found that it is not secure against an offline dictionary attack in the presence of a malicious client.  ...
