Just Fast Keying: Key Agreement in a Hostile Internet

Aiello, William; Bellovin, Steven Michael; Blaze, Matt; Canetti, Ran; Ioannidis, John; Keromytis, Angelos D.; Reingold, Omer

We describe Just Fast Keying (JFK), a new key-exchange protocol, primarily designed for use in the IP security architecture. It is simple, efficient, and secure; we sketch a proof of the latter property. JFK also has a number of novel engineering parameters that permit a variety of tradeoffs, most notably the ability to balance the need for perfect forward secrecy against susceptibility to denial-of-service attacks.
