Coin Tossing With A Man In The Middle Boaz Barak

RightLeft – two party protocol Middle Adversary completely controls communication No shared secrets between left & right No trusted parties or public information (e.g., no PKI) Man In The Middle (MIM) Attack

3
Two Unavoidable Adversary Strategies LeftMiddleRight Left SessionRight Session Relaying Strategy - Adversary is transparent Blocking Strategy - Adversary follows honest strategy independently in each session Intuitive Goal: Design protocols s.t. adversay is essentially limited to unavoidable strategies.

4
Example: Commitment Scheme LeftMiddleRight Left SessionRight Session Input: Com. Value: If Adv. relaying then = If Adv. blocking then independent of Scheme is non-malleable [DDN91] if either = or and are (computationally) independent Non-malleability = Intuitive goal

5
Comparison: MIM vs. Non-Malleability MIM Model: Adversary between 2 parties that want to talk to each other. Preferred strategy: relaying NM Model: Two sessions with 2 out of the 4 parties cooperating maliciously. Preferred strategy: blocking

6
Our goal: construct protocols s.t. adversary is essentially restricted to use either blocking or relaying. Technically: same as non-malleabllity [DDN] However: we dont take a moral stand which unavoidable strategy is better. Summary

Previous Work * : NM Commit w/ O(log n) rounds [DDN91] NM Zero-Knowledge w/ O(log n) rounds [DDN91] This Work: NM Commit w/ O(1) rounds NM Zero-Knowledge w/ O(1) rounds Different Techniques (e.g., Non-Black-Box Proof of Security) Generic transformation from SRS model to plain model. * See next slide for works in shared reference string (SRS) model

Our Approach: Convert ref Left Coin-Tossing Output: r Run ref (r) Coin-Tossing Output: r Run ref (r) Coin-Tossing Output: r Run ref (r) Informal Def: Coin-tossing is Non-Malleable if either r=r or r is (computationally) random & independent from r If r=r : same as in SRS execution! If r indp. from r: formally different from SRS However, if ref is Natural then it is still secure! Thm: If 9 constant-round NM coin-tossing then 9 constant-round NM commitment scheme and ZK argument.

Our goal: construct a constant-round NM coin- tossing protocol. In the paper: we (define and) construct such a protocol. Now: we solve a related toy problem and then an even more related bigger problem Outline

Claim 1: A random subset B µ {0,1} n of size n log n satisfies properties 1&2 w.h.p. Claim 2: If 9 sub-exponentially hard OWF then can choose such B using polylog(n) (instead of 2 polylog(n) ) coins. For each n go over all possible coin tosses for choosing B We define BOGUS Å {0,1} n to be the first set that satisfies properties 1&2. Then, BOGUS 2 Dtime(2 polylog(n) ) µ SUBEXP 1. BOGUS is pseudorandom w.r.t. uniform PPT 2. For every r 2 BOGUS and interesting S, S(r) Å BOGUS= ; BOGUS properties: 3. BOGUS 2 SUBEXP Constructing the set BOGUS Claim 3: If 9 sub-exponentially hard OWF then for B µ {0,1} n of size n log n can check in 2 polylog(n) steps if B satisfies properties 1&2.

20
Additional modifications needed for security against non-uniform adversaries. Security proof involves non-black-box use of adversarys code. Actual NM coin-tossing def follows ideal functionality paradigm. Modifications to protocol needed to satisfy actual def. Some technical difficulties arise with non-syncrhonizing schedules. Can be solved using multiple rewinding opportunities a-la [RK] (similar to [GL]) Beyond the bigger problem

21
Conclusions & Open Questions First constant-round NM Commit & NM ZK in plain model. Quite general transformation from SRS model to plain MIM model. Another positive application of non-black-box techniques. Generalize to other applications? more parties? Acknowledgements: Alon Rosen
