Secure and Energy-Efficient Key-Agreement Protocol for Multi-server Architecture

Authentication schemes are practiced globally to verify the legitimacy of users and servers for the exchange of data in different facilities. Generally, the server verifies a user to provide resources for different purposes. But due to the large network system, the authentication process has become complex and therefore, time-to-time different authentication protocols have been proposed for the multi-server architecture. However, most of the protocols are vulnerable to various security attacks and their performance is not efficient. In this paper, we propose a secure and energy-efficient remote user authentication protocol for multi-server systems. The results show that the proposed protocol is comparatively \(\sim \)44% more efficient and needs \(\sim \)38% less communication cost. We also demonstrate that with only two-factor authentication, the proposed protocol is more secure from the earlier related authentication schemes.
