Self-certified Sybil-Free Pseudonyms
2008 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Accurate and trusted identifiers are a centerpiece for any security architecture. Protecting against Sybil attacks in a privacy-friendly manner is a non-trivial problem in wireless infrastructureless networks, such as mobile ad hoc networks. In this paper, we introduce self-certified Sybil-free pseudonyms as a means to provide privacy-friendly Sybil-freeness without requiring continuous online availability of a trusted

third party. These pseudonyms are self-certified and computed by the users themselves from their cryptographic longterm identities. Contrary to identity certificates, we preserve location privacy and improve protection against some notorious attacks on anonymous communication systems
