Cryptanalysis and Improvement of a Two-Factor User Authentication Scheme Providing Mutual Authentication and Key Agreement over Insecure Channels

Sajida Kalsoom and Sheikh Ziauddin
Abstract—A two-factor remote authentication scheme was presented by Chun-Ta Li et al. in 2010. We present the framework of an impersonation attack against their scheme if the smart card gets stolen. We show that it is easy for an attacker to compute password of a user by using information extracted from the stolen smart card. We also propose a simple and easy solution to fix this problem.

Index Terms—Authentication schemes, cryptanalysis, mutual authentication, smart card.
