Abstract

This paper presents a novel method for secure message transmission – the Software Implementation using Hardware-Based Verification for Secure Content Delivery (SIHBVSCD) method. This method incorporates a two-tier security protocol which allows messages to be verified at both the user level (coming from a particular user) and hardware level (originating from a particular machine) providing protection from espionage and/or clandestine manipulation of information. SIHBVSCD securely sets up a one-time symmetric key used for transmission, offering advantages over both the high theft/loss likelihood of smartcards and the inability of hardware-based verification for machines that do not contain hardware capable of remote attestation.
