Blind, Auditable Membership Proofs
, 1999
"... Auditability is an important property in financial systems and architectures. Here we define the primitive of "blind auditable membership proofs" (BAMP) which combines public auditability with privacy (i.e. user anonymity). In particular, one can view it as an auditable alternative to a ..."

Supporting Nonmembership Proofs with Bilinearmap Accumulators
, 2008
"... In this short note, we present an extension of Nguyen’s bilinearmap based accumulator scheme [8] to support nonmembership witnesses and corresponding nonmembership proofs, i.e., cryptographic proofs that an element has not been accumulated to a given set. This complements the nonmembership proof ..."

PrimarySecondaryResolver Membership Proof Systems
, 2014
"... We consider PrimarySecondaryResolver Membership Proof Systems (PSR for short) and show different constructions of that primitive. A PSR system is a 3party protocol, where we have a primary, which is a trusted party which commits to a set of members and their values, then generates a public and se ..."

Proof verification and hardness of approximation problems
 IN PROC. 33RD ANN. IEEE SYMP. ON FOUND. OF COMP. SCI
, 1992
"... We show that every language in NP has a probablistic verifier that checks membership proofs for it using logarithmic number of random bits and by examining a constant number of bits in the proof. If a string is in the language, then there exists a proof such that the verifier accepts with probabilit ..."

Probabilistic checking of proofs: a new characterization of NP
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1998
"... We give a new characterization of NP: the class NP contains exactly those languages L for which membership proofs (a proof that an input x is in L) can be verified probabilistically in polynomial time using logarithmic number of random bits and by reading sublogarithmic number of bits from the proof ..."

Proofs that Yield Nothing but Their Validity or All Languages in NP Have ZeroKnowledge Proof Systems
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1991
"... In this paper the generality and wide applicability of Zeroknowledge proofs, a notion introduced by Goldwasser, Micali, and Rackoff is demonstrated. These are probabilistic and interactive proofs that, for the members of a language, efficiently demonstrate membership in the language without convey ..."

Random Oracles are Practical: A Paradigm for Designing Efficient Protocols
, 1995
"... We argue that the random oracle model  where all parties have access to a public random oracle  provides a bridge between cryptographic theory and cryptographic practice. In the paradigm we suggest, a practical protocol P is produced by first devising and proving correct a protocol P R for the ..."

Logical foundations of objectoriented and framebased languages
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1995
"... We propose a novel formalism, called Frame Logic (abbr., Flogic), that accounts in a clean and declarative fashion for most of the structural aspects of objectoriented and framebased languages. These features include object identity, complex objects, inheritance, polymorphic types, query methods, ..."

, encapsulation, and others. In a sense, Flogic stands in the same relationship to the objectoriented paradigm as classical predicate calculus stands to relational programming. Flogic has a modeltheoretic semantics and a sound and complete resolutionbased proof theory. A small number of fundamental concepts
NonMalleable Cryptography
 SIAM Journal on Computing
, 2000
"... The notion of nonmalleable cryptography, an extension of semantically secure cryptography, is defined. Informally, in the context of encryption the additional requirement is that given the ciphertext it is impossible to generate a different ciphertext so that the respective plaintexts are related. ..."

. The same concept makes sense in the contexts of string commitment and zeroknowledge proofs of possession of knowledge. Nonmalleable schemes for each of these three problems are presented. The schemes do not assume a trusted center; a user need not know anything about the number or identity of other

this paper we introduce a system called Crowds for protecting users' anonymity on the worldwide web. Crowds, named for the notion of "blending into a crowd", operates by grouping users into a large and geographically diverse group (crowd) that collectively issues requests on behalf of its members. Web servers are unable to learn the true source of a request because it is equally likely to have originated from any member of the crowd, and even collaborating crowd members cannot distinguish the originator of a request from a member who is merely forwarding the request on behalf of another. We describe the design, implementation, security, performance, and scalability of our system. Our security analysis introduces degrees of anonymity as an important tool for describing and proving anonymity properties.
