A Distributed Public Key Infrastructure Based on Threshold Cryptography for the HiiMap Next Generation Internet Architecture

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, a security extension for the HiiMap Next Generation Internet Architecture is presented. The authors regard a public key infrastructure which is integrated into the mapping infrastructure of the locator/identifier-split addressing scheme. The security approach is based on Threshold Cryptography which enables a sharing of keys among the mapping servers. Hence, a more trustworthy and fair approach for a Next Generation Internet Architecture as compared to the state of the art approach is fostered. Additionally, they give an evaluation based on IETF AAA recommendations for security-related systems.
