Lee et al. recently proposed the first identity-based key agreement protocols for a multiple PKG environment where each PKG has different domain parameters in ICCSA 2005. However, this letter demonstrates that Lee et al.'s scheme does not include the property of implicit key authentication which is the fundamental security requirement, making it vulnerable to an impersonation attack.
