Rethinking Public Key Infrastructures and Digital Certificates
by Stefan A. Brands
Publisher: The MIT Press 2000
Number of pages: 356
In this book Stefan Brands proposes cryptographic building blocks for the design of digital certificates that preserve privacy without sacrificing security. Such certificates function in much the same way as cinema tickets or subway tokens: anyone can establish their validity and the data they specify, but no more than that.
