Solving the UESPU problem using a forger of (x′ , y ′ ).
Efficient Defence against Misbehaving TCP Receiver DoS Attacks
Forger F is given values B , X0 , where B , X0 ∈R G. 2. F is given access to a signing oracle ˆB (of public-key B = g b and secret-key b). 3.
A New Family of Practical Non-Malleable Diffie-Hellman Protocols
Then, ˆB responds with (y , Y = g y , Z cy ) to F (which captures the powerful exposure capability to the forger ), and stores the vector ( ˆZ , Z, m ˆZ , m ˆB , y , Y , Z cy ) as an “incomplete session”.

In this case, the output of C is the just correct value of CDH (X0 , B ). (cid:3) Now, we consider the case that the forger F is against the signer ˆB itself (i.e., ˆA = ˆB ).
