Abstract

Our networked society increasingly needs secure identity sys-
tems. The Attribute-based credential (ABC) technology is designed to
be privacy-friendlier than contemporary authentication methods, which
often suffer from information leakage. So far, however, some of the wider
implications of ABC have not been appropriately discussed, mainly be-
cause they lie outside of the research scope of most cryptographers and
computer engineers. This paper explores a range of such implications,
shows that there are potential risks associated with the wider introduc-
tion of ABC in society, and makes the case that legal and societal aspects
of ABC be subjected to extended interdisciplinary research.
