Public Ledger for Sensitive Data

Riccardo Longo and Massimiliano Sala

Abstract: Satoshi Nakamoto's Blockchain allows to build publicly verifiable and almost immutable ledgers, but sometimes privacy has to be factored in.

In this work an original protocol is presented that allows sensitive data to be stored on a ledger where its integrity may be publicly verified, but its privacy is preserved and owners can tightly manage the sharing of their information with efficient revocation.
