Cradle of Identity Mixer

Posted in Uncategorized at 14:51 by Thomas Groß

Identity Mixer was originally developed by IBM Research, in particular the computer science department of the Zurich Research Lab.

It is based on the CL-signature scheme invented by Jan Camenisch and Anna Lysyanskaya.

Identity Mixer was contributed by IBM to the EU-funded project PRIME, for which it made a crucial part of the identity management and privacy architecture. The international researchers from Academia and Industry integrated Identity Mixer in a bigger vision of privacy for the information society.

PRIME‘s follow-up EU-project PrimeLife continues to use Identity Mixer as technology basis, for which IBM extends it with advanced capabilities. PrimeLife offers Identity Mixer for download.
