Dynamic Universal Accumulators for DDH Groups and Their Application to Attribute-Based Anonymous Credential Systems

Dartmouth TR2009-643

Abstract: We present the first dynamic universal accumulator that allows (1) the accumulation of elements in a DDH-hard group G and (2) one who knows x such that y=g^x has --- or has not --- been accumulated, where g generates G, to efficiently prove her knowledge of such x in zero knowledge, and hence without revealing, e.g., x or y.

We introduce the Attribute-Based Anonymous Credential System (ABACS), which allows the verifier to authenticate anonymous users according to any access control policy expressible as a formula of possibly negated boolean user attributes. We construct the system from our accumulator.
