Based on users' permanent private keys and ephemeral secret keys (randomness secret values), authenticated key agreement (AKA) protocols are used to construct a common session key between two session parties while authenticating each other. Recently, the design of leakage-resilient AKA (LR-AKA) resisting side-channel attacks has received significant attention from researchers. By side-channel attacks, an adversary is allowed to obtain fractional leakage information of private (secret) keys during the computation rounds of LR-AKA protocols. However, most LR-AKA protocols have a restriction, namely, the overall fractional leakage information must be bounded. In this paper, we propose an efficient LR-AKA protocol with overall unbounded leakage property in the continual leakage extended Canetti-Krawczyk model. Security analysis is given to demonstrate that our LR-AKA protocol is provably secure in the generic bilinear group model. By comparisons, our protocol is better than the previously proposed LR-AKA protocols in terms of computation cost, security model, and leakage properties.
