"Outbound authentication for programmable secure coprocessors."
International Journal of Information Security.
3(1): 28--41. October 2004.
A programmable secure coprocessor platform can help solve many
security problems in distributed computing, particularly if
coprocessor applications can participate as full-fledged parties in
distributed cryptographic protocols. Thus, a generic platform must not
only provide programmability, maintenance, and configuration in the
hostile field, it must also provide outbound authentication for the
entities that result. This paper offers our experiences in solving
this problem for a high-end secure coprocessor product. This work
required synthesis of a number of techniques, so that parties with
different and dynamic views of trust can draw sound and complete
conclusions about remote coprocessor applications.
