Proposed by Maurer the bounded storage model has received much academic attention in the recent years. Perhaps the main reason for this attention is that the model facilitates a unique private key encryption scheme called hyper-encryption which provides everlasting unconditional security. So far the work on the bounded storage model has been largely on the theoretical basis. In this paper, we make a first attempt to outline a secure communication protocol based on this model. We describe a protocol which defines means for successfully establishing and carrying out an encryption session and address potential problems such as protocol failures and attacks. Furthermore, we outline a novel method for authenticating and ensuring the integrity of a channel against errors. Keywords: Bounded storage model, hyper-encryption, information theoretical security, pervasive networks.
