Robust Metering Schemes for General Access Structures [chapter]

Ventzislav Nikov, Svetla Nikova, Bart Preneel
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we extend the linear algebra approach from Nikov et al. in order to build robust unconditionally secure general metering schemes.  ...  They show that one should be able to detect illegal behavior of clients, i.e., one needs to verify the shares received from clients. Most metering schemes do not offer this feature.  ...  A linear algebra approach (which is applicable for any general monotone access structure) to metering schemes is presented in [3] by Blundo et al.  ...
