Due to the unprecedented growth of data, edge computing is transforming our lives in a better manner by increasing the performance and reducing the latency. It is the key framework deployed close to the data for processing effectively by connecting millions of devices together. Though it handles accelerated growth of data efficiently in real-time, data security and edge device authentication are still a nightmare. On the contrary, it is not possible to use complex protocols for authentication of edge devices due to its resource-constrained in nature. To address this issue, a state-of-art Hyperelliptic Curve Diffie–Hellman-based two-server Password-Only Authenticated Key Exchange Protocol is proposed in this paper by utilizing the properties of a geometrical shape, namely, tetrahedron. As a primary mandate, edge devices are authenticated to centralize cloud servers that store password information as tetrahedron properties using Hyperelliptic Curve Cryptography and Diffie–Hellman key exchange mechanisms. The proposed work is compared with similar existing works and proves its strength by considering communication cost, computational cost, security defense rate, and attack resistance rate as its core evaluation parameters.
