Anonymous Limited-Use-Proof Entity Authentication Protocol

Anonymous Limited-Use-Proof Entity Authentication Protocol Currently, challenger have differentiable materials to verify identity including certificates, proofs and lifetime and so on in an entity authentication protocol, which could prone to pry into proprietary information or distinguish different legitimate challengers for a semi-honest verifier. However these attempts of existed anonymous entity authentication protocols fail to enforce anonymity for entity authentication if the verifier is semi-honest. To deal with the question, The paper proposes an anonymous limited-use-proof entity authentication protocol, in which only a shared certificate is corresponding to all legitimate members’ identities, the restriction of using proof of identity is embedded in the shared certificate in secret and the number of using proof of identity is counted by method of updating certificate, consequently a legitimate member’s identity would become illegitimate if the number of using its proof is more than the authorized amount. Finally, the security of our proposed protocol is proved theoretically based on discrete logarithm hard problem in four aspects of correctness, confidentiality, anonymous and finiteness. Therefore, in our proposed protocol, a semi-honest verifier can only judge whether or not a challenger is legitimate, but get nothing on the proprietary information of the identities from the poof of challengers.
