Abstract: Asymmetric group key agreement protocol is to negotiate a shared group encryption key. Each member can calculate a decryption key corresponding to the encryption key. With the rapid development of network and system technology, secure information exchange has been one of the foci. In this paper, we propose an authenticated hierarchical asymmetric group key agreement protocol based on identity. Based on the realisation of a round of asymmetric group key agreement, the protocol carries out a second round of agreement. Different levels of secrets exchange information between a group of players with different permissions as the number of rounds increases, which can achieve anonymity and authentication and support dynamic group key updating of nodes to achieve forward and backward security of group key. The protocol proved to be secure under the assumption of bilinear computational Diffie-Hellman problem. The performance analysis shows that the proposed scheme is efficient.
