Abstract

Device-to-Device (D2D) communication technology comes as one brick among many others in the construction of the evolving fifth generation system (5G) architecture. The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardized D2D communication technology under the Proximity Services (ProSe) proposal. This technology allows enabling direct communication between proximate devices without passing through an infrastructure network. Security of D2D communications must be assured in all scenarios according to whether communication control is ensured by the Evolved Packet System (EPS) or the devices themselves. Certificateless public key cryptography (CL-PKC) is an interesting solution for securing D2D communications. In this paper, we propose a new CL-PKC construction to overcome security issues in all scenarios related to D2D communications and to deal with inherent conflicting security requirements between privacy, anonymity, and traceability by the use of multiple Key Generator Centers (KGCs). This was considered particularly as responsibility decentralization between stakeholders to respond the fully mistrust assumption regarding KGCs. Furthermore, the proposed CL-PKC system can give different networks the opportunity to be compatible and to work cooperatively.
