4211 - Using the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) for the Rapid Creation of Secure Enclaves

Monday, September 25
3:15 PM - 4:15 PM

Specified in RFC 7401 and approved by the IETF in 2015, the HIP v2 specification defines an alternative to the dual use of IP addresses as "locators" (routing labels) and "identifiers" (endpoint, or host, identifiers). With HIP, public cryptographic keys, of a public/private key pair, are used as host identifiers, to which higher-layer protocols are bound instead of an IP address. By using public keys (and their representations) as host identifiers, dynamic changes to IP address sets can be directly authenticated between hosts, and strong authentication may be instantiated between hosts at the TCP/IP stack level. HIP enables the rapid creation of enclaves that are both secure and invisible to other enclaves, or to potential attackers, that may exist outside the cryptographic namespace.
