What is it about?
Due to the rapid growth of mobile services, a single-server architecture that includes one server and multiple clients is not responsive to customer needs. For this reason, architecture was developed with several providers to extend scalability and accessibility. However, as customer-to-provider communication is done over the Internet, providing secure communication via efficient and provably secure mutual authentication and key agreement is of great importance.

Why is it important?
In this article, we design a provably secure and efficient Bilinear-based protocol for authentication and key agreement in environments with multiple service providers. Based on formal and informal security analysis, we prove that the proposed protocol is secure against various attacks and meets the essential security requirements. We also show that the scheme, in addition to being superior in terms of security, also performs better in terms of time complexity than similar Bilinear-based protocols designed for multi-server environments.
