Names in Cryptographic Protocols

Abstract

This paper discusses the security properties of names. To fulfill their role in cryptographic protocols, names must be unique across correlated sessions i.e. where the massages of one session can be reused in another without detection and that uniqueness must be guaranteed to hold for each participant of these runs. To provide and verify uniqueness, two different mechanisms are shown possible, namely local and global verification. In both cases we discuss the implications of uniqueness on the execution environment of a cryptographic protocol, pointing out the inescapable issues related to each of the two mechanisms. We argue that such implications should be given careful consideration as they represent important elements in the evaluation of a cryptographic protocol itself.
