Abstract

This paper presents how the security of key distribution protocols can be enhanced using the ternary arithmetic conversion, along with shared keys between communicating parties. It is shown that both the transmitting and the receiving party can calculate his own private key without exchanging it during the unsecured channel. Moreover, it is explained how the binary private keys can be independently generated by both communicating parties directly from the public ternary keys. The private keys are used to encrypt messages and allow secure communication through open untrusted channels. In addition, it is shown how addressable cryptographic tables technology can be exploited to design protocols that exchange safely the shared keys.
