Poster : Scalable Bias-Resistant Distributed Randomness

Bias-resistant public randomness is a critical component required in many (distributed) protocols. Tor hidden services depend on a fresh random value generated each day for protection against popularity estimations and DoS attacks. Anytrustbased systems such as Herbivore, Dissent, and Vuvuzela use bias-resistant public randomness for scalability by sharding… CONTINUE READING
