My answer is not original, as I am simply summing up information from different questions already solved in this site. Nevertheless, I thought it could be interesting to collect everything in one answer. The first thing you have to know is to differentiate between a digital signature and a message authentication code (MAC). In this case, HMAC is a MAC and ...

Among several aspects of the question, I'll cover only protection against replay of commands. A common technique (among several) is to have commands tied to a nonce, that somewhat is accepted only once by the slave device receiving the command. The nonce is included in the input of a MAC or public-key signature algorithm that protects the integrity of the ...

Designing such a challenge is Impossible. If we assume that having a connection is equal to being able to exchange any piece of knowledge at any given time then the proof of impossibility of such challenge is as follows: Proof. First assume that there is such a challenge and Alice is capable of querying such a challenge to correctly determine whether the ...

At first I want to cite Lindell and Katz book: A "plain Rabin" encryption scheme, constructed in a manner analogous to plain RSA encryption, is vulnerable to a chosen-ciphertext attack that enables an adversary to learn the entire private key. Although plain RSA is not CCA-secure either, known chosen-ciphertext attacks on plain RSA are less damaging ...

That practice of replacing the result of $y=x^d\bmod N$ (or $y=x^e\bmod N$) by $\hat y=\min(y,N-y)$ is also in ISO/IEC 9796-2:2010 (paywalled) and ancestors; I first met that in [INCITS/ANSI]/ISO/IEC 9796:1991, also given in the Handbook of Applied Cryptography, see in particular note 11.36. ISO/IEC 9796 was a broken and now withdrawn ...

An older copy of P1363 Public Key Cryptography was used below. In may (or may not) reflect the current state of affairs. It also uses Bernstein's RSA signatures and Rabin–Williams signatures: the state of the art. Do tweaked roots violate P1363? What I might be really asking is, does an exponent of 2 run afoul of P1363, but I'm not sure at the moment. ...
