A GENERALIZED FRAMEWORK FOR CRISP COMMITMENT SCHEMES

Alawi A. Al-Saggaf and Acharya H. S.

Abstract: Crisp Commitment schemes are very useful building blocks in the design of high-level cryptographic protocols. They are used as a mean of flipping fair coins between two players and others. In this paper an attempt has been made to give a generalized framework for Crisp Commitment schemes is called an Ordinary Crisp Commitment Scheme (OCCS). The Hiding and Binding properties of OCCS are well defined. We also review some the existing of different Crisp Commitment schemes and we show how it is follow our presenting framework.
