Abstract

Chaotic systems such as Lorenz functions have been proposed as cryptographic primitives due to their short-range divergence attributes. They are commonly used in pseudo random number generators, key agreement protocols, and certain classes of encryption procedures. These functions are typically used for their chaotic behavior. However, two of their key properties are often overlooked: (1) their long-range convergence behavior is seldom used, and (2) the static nature of their system parameters is disregarded. The static nature of the system parameters, i.e., core secret, renders these functions vulnerable to a number of attacks when they are deployed in security applications. In this work, we examine these usage gaps and discover compelling security applications for these chaotic systems, in particular, Lorenz chaotic systems. In this paper, we propose an adaptive and dynamic authentication scheme based on discrete Lorenz chaotic systems. The scheme leverages Lorenz function's convergence to achieve a fast and lightweight authentication protocol. We also devise a dynamic parameter configuration technique to enhance the security of the protocol.
