Management Method to Secure Private Key of PKI using One Time Password Kim, Seon-Joo; Joe, In-June;
We have various e-commerce like on-line banking, stock trading, shopping using a PC or SmartPhone. In e-commerce, two parties use the certificate for identification and non-repudiation but, the attack on the certificate user steadily has been increasing since 2005. The most of hacking is stealing the public certificate and private key files. After hacking, the stolen public certificate and private key file is used on e-commerce to fraud. Generally, the private key file is encrypted and saved only with the user`s password, and an encrypted private key file can be used after decrypted with user password. If a password is exposed to hackers, hacker decrypt the encrypted private key file, and uses it. For this reason, the hacker attacks user equipment in a various way like installing Trojan`s horse to take over the user`s certificate and private key file. In this paper, I propose the management method to secure private key of PKI using One Time Password certification technique. As a result, even if the encrypted private key file is exposed outside, the user`s private key is kept safely.
