This new version of the cryptography vintage will give you a accomplished survey of recent cryptography. The ebook information how programmers and digital communications pros can use cryptography-the means of enciphering and decoding messages-to hold the privateness of computing device information. It describes dozens of cryptography algorithms, provides functional recommendation on how one can enforce them into cryptographic software program, and indicates how they are often used to unravel safeguard difficulties. protecting the most recent advancements in sensible cryptographic suggestions, this new version indicates programmers who layout desktop purposes, networks, and garage structures how they could construct defense into their software program and systems.

Example text

Apart from the overlay tree, a parameter for cluster size k is provided as input to the clustering protocol. The traversal is performed from the leaves, upward, to the root. During the traversal, whenever members in the interval [A:, 2k - 1] are found, they are grouped into a cluster. The clustering protocol then prunes these members from the overlay tree and continues to traverse the remaining overlay tree. At the end of the traversal, all members are grouped into appropriately-sized clusters except the last cluster which may have fewer than k members.

Obviously, the naive solution is not scalable, and it frequently requires the use of secure channels. Secure channels are not always easy to establish. For these reasons a number of group key management protocols have been developed, each with different properties and performance. In this chapter we discuss some of these protocols. Tree-based key management protocols are important in that they are not only used for one-to-many multicast/broadcast applications but also for many- 18 SECURE GROUP COMMUNICATIONS OVER DATA NETWORKS to-many group communications.

The group is then partitioned into multiple temporary subgroups. Group merge. Two groups may fuse into a larger group in some SGC applications. Moreover, previously split groups due to an earlier network partition may need to merge again without member interaction. From the security point of view, secure group key management is trying to guarantee that only current group members can possess the current group key. This means that outsiders, old group members, and future members should not be able to obtain the current group key.
