Prototypes and Demonstrators

Posted in Publications tagged , at 17:07 by Thomas Groß

We are committed to prove that the cryptographic protocols developed are indeed practical. It has thus implemented the anonymous credential system and made that implementation available to interested parties. Such parties typically are universities interested in building applications requiring anonymous authentication. Everyone is now able to download the implementation freely, made available via the PRIME project ( Furthermore, the team has also shown that the technology can indeed be used to realize privacy-protecting electronic identity cards by implementing the protocols also on a standard Java Card. For the latter work, the team was awarded the 2009 prize of the german computer scientist society (GI).
