Specification of a Framework for the Anonymous Use of Privileges
V. Benjumea, J. Lopez, and J. M. Troya.
In this paper we have defined an open framework to support open
distributed applications where anonymous transactions based on user
privileges play an important role. The goal of the framework is to
provide a basis to the application level, and is presented from an
open and general perspective where many different implementation
schemes can fit. Moreover, we have presented a set of requirements
that implementation schemes must fulfill to conform a fully anonymous
privilege system, which guarantees to supported applications that
anonymity will be preserved in remote transactions. Finally, we
present an application scenario using the services provided by the
framework in order to better show the possibilities of what this type
of systems offers.
