Evaluation of Privacy-ABC Technologies – A Study on the Computational Efficiency

Authors

Fatbardh Veseli (Goethe University Frankfurt), Jetzabel Serna (Goethe University Frankfurt)

Abstract

Privacy-enhancing attribute-based credential (Privacy-ABC) technologies use different cryptographic methods to enhance the privacy of the users. This results in important practical differences between these technologies, especially with regard to efficiency, which have not been studied in depth, but is necessary for assessing their suitability for different user devices and for highly dynamic scenarios.

Signer-Anonymous Designated-Verifier Redactable Signatures for Cloud-Based Data Sharing

Authors

David Derler (Graz University of Technology), Stephan Krenn (AIT Austrian Institute of Technology), Daniel Slamanig (Graz University of Technology)

Abstract

Redactable signature schemes allow to black out predefined parts of a signed message without affecting the validity of the signature, and are therefore an important building block in privacy-enhancing cryptography.
