Common key agreement protocols assume that both parties have some knowledge of each others identity or the identity is exchanged without protection. There are many real-world situations where this is either not possible or not desirable, e.g. mobile networks. This paper investigates the user identity privacy in the protocols employing identity-based primitives from pairings. By considering both security strength and computation efficiency, an identity-based protocol is proposed using pairing which preserves both user identity privacy and high efficiency. The proposed key exchange system is formally analysed to confirm its rigour.
