Virtually every financial corporation in America is planning on implementing some form of Digital Cash or Digital Money. David Chaum and a myriad of other researchers have come up with a plethora of cryptographic protocols, each with a set of limitations and problems. Among the issues considered by the designers of these protocols are transaction anonymity, speed, law enforcement control, accountability, etc.
In this seminar I propose to give a brief introduction of some of the more popular digital cash schemes, along with a brief analysis of the cryptographic techniques they use, their problems and limitations, and the consequences of wide spread use of them.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
