March, 2002 doc:.: /136r0 Daniel V. Bailey, William Whyte, NTRU How can we get to a standard? Open questions: –Settle distributed/centralized architecture –Certs or not-certs to be mandatory? –Which algorithms to use? For reasons of time, look at ways of doing this as deltas to the NTRU text
March, 2002 doc:.: /136r0 Daniel V. Bailey, William Whyte, NTRU Distributed/Centralized Trust model NTRU architecture supports distributed trust as a series of peer- to-peer connections –Could look at writing text to make this explicit Could say subgroups are inconsistent with architecture –Raises many complicated topics: membership, identity – are these application-layer? Could do something else? –Consistent with getting the standard out fast?
March, 2002 doc:.: /136r0 Daniel V. Bailey, William Whyte, NTRU Mandate Certs/No Certs? NTRU architecture allows definition of cert-based authentication methods –Question is mandate/not mandate, not allow/forbid Certicom/Motorola presentation allows for initial authentication without certs –Certification used to ease PNC handover; this seems a separate issue. Other arguments for use of certs based on content provider requirements –Thats DRM. Thats out of scope. Shouldnt mandate based on that. –But NTRU architecture allows certs… Proposed solution: Make non-cert-based mandatory to implement; encourage Certicom and Motorola to write optional cert-based algorithm suite to fulfill their customers needs.
March, 2002 doc:.: /136r0 Daniel V. Bailey, William Whyte, NTRU Mandatory to Implement Algorithm Software –NTRU on a 16 bit, 1 MHz microprocessor: Encrypt 65 ms, Decrypt 119 ms. –According to 02135r0, ECC encryption/decryption take more than 1 second on a 10 MHz 386, seconds on a Palm VII. –On 850 MHz Pentium: ECC ~600 encrypt/decrypt/second (Hankerson, Henderson, Menezes); NTRU 10,000 decrypt, 20,000 encrypt/second. Hardware –NTRU: 15,750 gates = 50,000 cycles (decrypt), 25,000 (encrypt) 60,000 gates = 258 cycles for core convolution Good-faith figures; would love to see figures direct from Certicom.
March, 2002 doc:.: /136r0 Daniel V. Bailey, William Whyte, NTRU Fastest Adoption of Any PKCS Six years of rigorous, independent scrutiny Initial standards adoption VHDL cores, embedded firmware now available Becoming the standard for security in RFID industry –Selected by majority of semiconductor vendors –Major announcements and rollout begin March 18, 2002 –Protocols very similar to –Demonstrations at Feb. trade show, from six major manufacturers, included: Atmel: Smart card microprocessor Inside Technologies: National ID card [Major US Semi Mfr]: wireless process control and monitoring system NEC: Biometrics Philips Semiconductor: Contactless dual interface smart card Texas Instruments: Wireless DRM
