Abstract
A satellite communication is suitable for broadcasting service and long-hual transmission based on telecommunications.
In the satellite communication environment, unauthorized user should not have to obtain his/her required services
from the satellite communication systems without authentication. Therefore, authentication is an important security technique
to prevent illegal service requests. Quite recently, Lee-Lin-Hwang [C. C. Lee, T. C. Lin, M. S. Hwang. A key agreement
scheme for satellite communications, Information Technology and Control, 2010, Vol. 39, No. 1, 43-47.] proposed a secure
scheme based on key agreement scheme with mutual authentication to solve the security problems on the VSAT satellite
communications. However, Lee-Lin-Hwang’s scheme is inefficiently designed because it is based on the RSA cryptosystem.
Therefore, the scheme cannot be applicable for the low-power satellite communication environments because it involves high
communication and computation costs. Based on these motivations, this paper proposes a new efficient and secure key agreement
scheme for VSAT satellite communications based on elliptic curve cryptosystem (ECC) to minimize the complexity of
computational costs between VSAT and HUB and fit VSAT satellite communication environments. Compared with previous
schemes, the newly proposed scheme has the following more practical merits: (1) it provides secure session key agreement
function by adopting elliptic curve cryptosystem, (2) it can reduce the total execution time and memory requirement due to the
elliptic curve cryptography, and (3) it not only is secure against well-known cryptographical attacks but also provides perfect
forward secrecy. As a result, the proposed scheme is extremely suitable for use in satellite communication environments since
it provides security, reliability, and efficiency.
