ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 11 -- Florida International University, Miami, Florida, has been assigned a patent (No. 11,329,806, initially filed Nov. 10, 2021) developed by two co-inventors for "systems and methods for authentication and key agreement in a smart grid." The co-inventors are Kemal Akkaya, Miami, Florida, and Mumin Cebe, Miami, Florida.

The full-text of the patent can be found at,329,806.PN.&OS=PN/11,329,806&RS=PN/11,329,806

The abstract states: "Systems and methods for authentication and key agreement are provided and can utilize a scheme that uses dynamic key generation to achieve replay-attack resistance in zero round trip time (0-RTT). The hash-chain concept can be integrated with the Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange scheme. With this scheme, a device can securely determine the new shared key immediately (i.e., in 0-RTT) and start using it."
