Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is a public key cryptography which is used to prevent the problems due to forgery in passports. The RFID chip raises some security and privacy issues like issuance, encryption, read range and so on, but there are also other aspects to consider with implementation of RFID
A class of cryptographic protocols called Password-Authenticated Key Exchange provides a more robust solution to this problem. PAKE protocols ensure that an eavesdropper can’t learn any information on the low-entropy secret. They’re also required to be as secure as possible against all passive and active attacks. Here we discuss how researchers have solved this problem and describe two PAKE protocols that use this technique to achieve different security properties.
