Recently the use of public key encryption to provide secure network communication has received considerable attention. Such public key systems are usually effective against passive eavesdroppers, who merely tap the lines and try to decipher the message. It has been pointed out, however, that an improperly designed protocol could be vulnerable to an active saboteur, one who may impersonate another user or alter the message being transmitted. Several models are formulated in which the security of protocols can be discussed precisely. Algorithms and characterizations that can be used to determine protocol security in these models are given.

The publication "On the security of public key protocols" is placed in the Top 10000 of the best publications in CiteWeb. Also in the category Computer Science it is included to the Top 1000. Additionally, the publicaiton "On the security of public key protocols" is placed in the Top 100 among other scientific works published in 1983.
