Key Event Receipt Infrastructure (KERI)

  title={Key Event Receipt Infrastructure (KERI)},
  author={Samuel M. Smith},
A decentralized key management infrastructure (DKMI) that uses the design principle of minimally sufficient means is presented. [...] Key Method KERI is designed to support DIDs but its core services are identifier independent (this includes DID method independence). This makes KERI a candidate for a universal portable DKMI.Expand

Self-certifying file system
While other file systems need key management to map file names to encryption keys, SFS file names effectively contain public keys, making them self-certifying pathnames, making SFS more versatile than any file system with built-in key management. Expand

Efficient Sparse Merkle Trees - Caching Strategies and Secure (Non-)Membership Proofs
This work is the first to provide complete, succinct, and recursive definitions of a sparse Merkle tree and related operations, and shows that these definitions enable efficient space-time trade-offs for different caching strategies, and verifiable audit paths can be generated to prove (non-)membership in practically constant time when using SHA-512/256.
