Menezes Qu Vanstone (MQV)

The MQV algorithm is a protocol for key exchange named after the developers A. Menezes, M. Qu and S. Vanstone, which is based on the Diffie-Hellman algorithm( DHA), but has the advantage that the resulting keys are authenticated simultaneously.

The MQV method is an efficient public key method in which authentication and key agreement are performed in one computational process. The MQV method is used in ZigBee, among others.
