Abstract

This paper pro poses a ley distribution system based on identification information. The system uses an indivdual user's identification instead of the public file used in the Diffie-Hellman sustem. It does not require any services of a center to distribute work keys and users to keep directory public file. We propose an identity-based key distribution system for generating a commom secret conference kdy for two or more users. We assume users are connected in a ring network. Message among users authenticated using each user's identification informa-tion. The security of the our proposed system is based on the difficulty of both factoring large numbers and computing discrete logarithms over large finite fields.
