### Paper: On an authentication scheme based on the Root Problem in the braid group

Authors: Boaz Tsaban URL: http://eprint.iacr.org/2005/264 Search ePrint Search Google Lal and Chaturvedi proposed two authentication schemes based on the difficulty of the Root Problem in the braid group. We point out that the first scheme is not really as secure as the Root Problem, and describe an efficient way to crack it. The attack works for any group.
