The Future of Secure Remote Password (SRP)


The Secure Remote Password (SRP) holds great promise as a way to strongly authenticate a user without the usual risks of dictionary attack(s) faced by other password-based authentication schemes. Yet the industry de-facto standard remains the password-based authentication scheme. This article explores the possibilities for SRP in today’s multi-channel world, specifically how it improves upon the inherent insecurity of password authentication and the obstacles to overcome to succeed.

Herein lies the greatest promise of SRP. With the plethora of channels in today's world, a need for a way to authenticate a client based on a small' secret is critical. For instance, clients need to access their enterprises and e-business sites via cellular phones, PDAs, set top boxes, voice gateways, and potentially Read More

Estimating Acoustic Performance of a Cell Phone


This paper discusses the requirements for coupled structural-acoustic simulation and demonstrates the application of this technology to cell-phone acoustic design. Due to the smaller volume sizes, the low frequency response of the cell phone is affected. The frequency response rolls off faster at low frequencies when smaller microphone back volumes are used. The present work deals with studying this effect on a simple cell phone model with the finite element package, Abaqus. The results from the simulation can be used to better design cell phone cavities for optimum performance.
