Schnorr-based implicit certification: improving the security and efficiency of V2X communications
Authors: Paulo S. L. M. Barreto, Marcos A. Simplicio Jr., Jefferson E. Ricardini, Harsh Kupwade PatilAbstract:
In the implicit certification model, the process of verifying the validity of the signer’s public key is combined with the verification of the signature itself. When compared to traditional, explicit certificates, the main advantage of the implicit approach lies in the shorter public key validation data. This property is particularly important in resource-constrained scenarios where public key validation is performed very often, which is common in vehicular communications (V2X) that employ pseudonym certificates. In this article, we show that an alternative, Schnorr-based implicit certification procedure can improve the efficiency of a popular V2X-oriented pseudonym certificate provisioning approach, the (unified) butterfly key expansion. As an additional contribution, we show that butterfly keys are vulnerable to existential forgery attacks under certain conditions, and also discuss how this issue can be fixed in an effective and efficient manner.
