Automated Cryptographic Analysis of the Pedersen Commitment Scheme [chapter]

Roberto Metere, Changyu Dong
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents a mechanised formal verification of the popular Pedersen commitment protocol, proving its security properties of correctness, perfect hiding, and computational binding.  ...  Commitments are building blocks of many cryptographic constructions, for example, verifiable secret sharing, zero-knowledge proofs, and e-voting.  ...  Formal Verification of Pedersen Commitment Scheme In this section we show how we modelled the generic commitment scheme and its security properties, the Pedersen commitment scheme and we proved its security  ...

ZKSENSE: a Privacy-Preserving Mechanism for Bot Detection in Mobile Devices [article]

Panagiotis Papadopoulos, Iñigo Querejeta-Azurmendi, Jiexin Zhang, Matteo Varvello, Antonio Nappa, Benjamin Livshits
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Recent studies show that 20.4% of the internet traffic originates from automated agents.  ...  To identify and block such ill-intentioned traffic, mechanisms that verify the humanness of the user are widely deployed across the internet. CAPTCHA is the most popular among such mechanisms.  ...  The Pedersen commitment scheme gives us the following property: V 1 +V 2 = Commit(v 1 ) + Commit(v 2 ) = Commit(v 1 + v 2 ).  ...

Algebraic Construction for Zero-Knowledge Sets

Rui Xue, Ning-Hui Li, Jiang-Tao Li
2008 Journal of Computer Science and Technology  
That is, the schemes employ the Merkle tree as a basic structure and mercurial commitments as the commitment units to nodes of the tree. The proof for any query consists of an authentication chain.  ...  However all the existing ZKS schemes follow the basic structure by Micali et al.  ...  Micali, Rabin, and Kilian [1] give an efficient construction of zero-knowledge sets using the Merkle hash tree [2] and the Pedersen commitment scheme [3] .  ...

SoK of Used Cryptography in Blockchain [article]

Mayank Raikwar, Danilo Gligoroski, Katina Kralevska
2019 arXiv   pre-print
To the best of our knowledge, there is no Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) that gives a complete picture of the existing cryptographic concepts which have been deployed or have the potential to be deployed  ...  We also include possible instantiations of these cryptographic concepts in the blockchain domain.  ...  There are many commitment schemes such as Pedersen commitment [155] and elliptic curve Pedersen commitment. Zerocoin [124] uses Pedersen commitment to bind a serial number s to Zerocoin z.  ...
