Abstract (Summary of the Work)

Key-exchange protocol are one of the interesting fields of study in Cryptography. These are the mechanisms by which two or more parties that communicate over an adversarially-controlled network can generate a common secret key. In my desertion thesis, I tried to focus on two aspects of key-exchange protocols. First is the behaviour of these protocols when they are exposed to related randomness attacks (RRA) or when the adversary partially controls the the randomness pool to be used by the parties and how to secure those protocols in these scenarios to make them useful. The second aspect is to extend two party Non-interactive Key-exchange (NIKE) protocols to three party in standard model extending the underlying model with proper security bound.
