I've been asked to write some course materials on cryptography and included in the objectives are some vulnerabilities/attacks. Most of these I have nailed but there are three that I don't seem to be able to find any info on:

  • Version spoofing attack (possibly the same as version rollback attack which I have written about)
  • Backtrack attack
  • Reverse protocol attack (I found one website that mentions this but not what it actually is)

Can anyone shed any light on them?

    $\begingroup$ I don't know about these attacks, but if you want to share your course materials, I would be very interested ! $\endgroup$ – Faulst Jul 5 '18 at 11:42
