Protego: Efficient, Revocable and Auditable Anonymous Credentials with Applications to Hyperledger Fabric

Abstract

Recent works to improve privacy in permissioned blockchains like Hyperledger Fabric rely on Idemix, the only anonymous credential system that has been integrated to date. The current Idemix implementation in Hyperledger Fabric (v2.4) only supports a fixed set of attributes; it does not support revocation features, nor does it support anonymous endorsement of transactions (in Fabric, transactions need to be approved by a subset of peers before consensus). A prototype Idemix extension by Bogatov et al. (CANS, 2021) was proposed to include revocation, auditability, and to gain privacy for users. In this work, we explore how to gain efficiency, functionality, and further privacy, departing from recent works on anonymous credentials based on Structure-Preserving Signatures on Equivalence Classes. As a result, we extend previous works to build a new anonymous credential scheme called Protego. We also present a variant of it (Protego Duo) based on a different approach to hiding the identity of an issuer during showings. We also discuss how both can be integrated into Hyperledger Fabric and provide a prototype implementation. Finally, our results show that Protego and Protego Duo are at least twice as fast as state-of-the-art approaches based on Idemix.
