Developing Efficient Blinded Attribute Certificates on Smart Cards via Pairings

  title={Developing Efficient Blinded Attribute Certificates on Smart Cards via Pairings},
  author={Lejla Batina and Jaap-Henk Hoepman and Bart Jacobs and Wojciech Mostowski and Pim Vullers},
This paper describes an elementary protocol to prove possession of anonymous credentials together with its implementation on smart cards. The protocol uses self-blindable attribute certificates represented as points on an elliptic curve (which are stored on the card). These certificates are verified on the reader-side via a bilinear pairing. Java Card smart cards offer only very limited access to the cryptographic coprocessor. It thus requires some ingenuity to get the protocol running with… CONTINUE READING
