In 1996, Adam Back floated the idea of a public key cryptosystem with a series of public keys pi and secret keys si that stand in the usual relationship with each other but for which there are updating functions fi and gi such that pi+1 = fi(pi) and si+1 = gi(si) [2]. In this way a single root public key p0 could be certified, and thereafter the key owner could regularly calculate si+1 and destroy si. In this way, the compromise of a private key would not expose traffic encrypted to the key in… CONTINUE READING
