Distributed Key Generation and Threshold Decryption for OpenPGP

Item posted by Heiko Stamer <stamer> on Fri 02 Jun 2017 07:56:50 PM UTC.

LibTMCG now contains experimental support of Distributed Key Generation (DKG) and Threshold Decryption for the ElGamal Cryptosystem. There is some basic integration for OpenPGP (RFC 4880). However, for the message exchange of DKG protocol additional dependencies (GNUnet >= 0.10.2, still not yet released) are required. The corresponding programs are explained in manual pages and the LibTMCG reference manual.

The motivation, cryptographical background and some usage scenarios have been presented at 26th Krypto-Tag. Please consult the slides for a first overview.

Every help is very welcome!
