Security Analysis of Two Distance-Bounding Protocols

In this paper, the authors analyze the security of two recently proposed distance bounding protocols called the "Hitomi" and the "NUS" protocols. Their results show that the claimed security of both protocols has been overestimated. Namely, they show that the Hitomi protocol is susceptible to a full secret key disclosure attack which not only results in violating the privacy of the protocol but also can be exploited for further attacks such as impersonation, mafia fraud and terrorist fraud attacks.
