  • In this work we investigate the problem of using public consensus networks – exemplified by systems like Ethereum and Bitcoin – to perform cryptographic functionalities that involve the manipulation of secret data, such as cryptographic access control. We consider a hybrid paradigm in which a secure client-side functionality manages cryptographic secrets, while an online consensus network performs public computation. Using this approach, we explore both the constructive and potentially… CONTINUE READING
