Identification protocols are vital for secure wireless communication for peer to peer or group communication. Our assumption is that the communication channel is insecure and any intruder can access to it. The intruder can launch various related attacks and it leads to the failure of the cryptographic goals. In this paper, we propose a new identification protocol which can be customized as a money transaction protocol based on the triple decomposition problem. We show that our protocol matches with the necessary security requirements which include completeness, soundness and honest verifier zero knowledge under the assumption that the triple decomposition problem is secure. The proposed scheme is very useful in all those situations where data communication security is highly desired.
