Best Paper Award at SecurWare’09

SAP Research Sophia Antipolis (France) is proud to announce that Paul El-Khoury, Gomez Laurent, Dr. Laube Annett and Alessandro Sorniotti won the Best Paper Award at the SecurWare conference for their paper: “A Security Pattern for Untraceable Secret Handshakes“.


This paper is the result of a joint work between two European research project Serenity and WASP.

Abstract: A security pattern describes aparticular recurring security problem that arises in specific contextsand presents a well-proven generic solution for it. This paper describes an Untraceable Secret Handshake, a protocol that allows twousers to mutually verify another’s properties without revealing theiridentity. The complex security solution is split into smaller partswhich are described in an abstract way. The identified securityproblems and their solutions are captured as SERENITY securitypatterns. The structured description together with motivating scenariosmakes the security solution better understandable for non-securityexperts and helps to disseminate the security knowledge to applicationdevelopers.
