Improved efficiency for revocation schemes via Newton interpolation
Noam Kogan, Tamir Tassa
Pages: 461-486
DOI: 10.1145/1187441.1187444
We present a novel way to implement the secret-sharing-based family of revocation schemes of Naor and Pinkas [2003]. The basic scheme of [Naor and Pinkas 2000] uses Shamir's polynomial secret-sharing to revoke up to r users, where r is...
