23.02.2022 10:00-11:00

Moderator: Tobias Schmalz (TU Darmstadt, Cryptoplexity Group) | Location: Online

Organizer: Shan Chen, TU Darmstadt, Cryptoplexity Group


This talk is the fifth one in the seminar series „Reading the Crypto Classics“ for the very special winter term 2022. The idea of this seminar is to jointly read classical milestone papers in the area of cryptography, to discuss their impact and understand their relevance for current research areas. The seminar is running as an Oberseminar, but at the same time meant to be a joint reading group seminar of the CROSSING Special Interest Group on Advanced Cryptography with all interested CROSSING members being invited to participate.

This issue will cover the paper/talk

Chaum: „Blind Signatures for Untraceable Payments“ (CRYPTO 1982) available at (wird in neuem Tab geöffnet)

with the following abstract (extracted from summary):

„A new kind of cryptography, blind signatures, has been introduced. It allows realization of untraceable payments systems which offer improved auditability and control compared to current systems, while at the same time offering increased personal privacy.“
