Secure Communication Using Identity Based Encryption
Secured communication has been widely deployed to guarantee confidentiality and integrity of connections over untrusted networks, e.g., the Internet. Although secure connections are designed to prevent attacks on the connection, they hide attacks inside the channel from being analyzed by Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). Furthermore, secure connections require a certain key exchange at the initialization phase, which is prone to Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) attacks. In this paper, the authors present a new method to secure connection which enables intrusion detection and overcomes the problem of MITM attacks.
