Panel: Threshold Protocols for the Digital Signature Standard

March 11, 2019


Hugo Krawczyk - IBM Research
Rosario Gennaro - The City College of New York/CUNY
Samuel Ranellucci - Unbound Tech
Abhi Shelat - Northeastern University


Partial abstract from the panel proposal: Due to the intense commercial interest in threshold protocols for DSA based signatures, we believe that a panel on the status of threshold protocols for DSA, and its maturity for standardization would be a very relevant and interesting addition to the NIST Workshop.

The panel, introduced by Hugo Krawczyk (IBM Research, USA), was composed of three introductory talks (the first of which is from the previous session, by Yashvanth Kondi), followed by a panel discussion.

Introduction talks:

  1. [Merged with previous session] A Multiparty Computation Approach to Threshold ECDSA. Speaker: Yashvanth Kondi. Joint work with: Jack Doerner, Eysa Lee, abhi shelat. (Northeastern University, USA).
  2. Fast Secure Multiparty ECDSA. Speaker: Samuel Ranellucci (Unbound Tech, Israel).
  3. Fast Multiparty Threshold ECDSA with Fast Trustless Setup. Speaker: Rosario Gennaro (CUNY, USA). Joint work with Steven Goldfeder.

Panel discussion. Moderator: Hugo Krawczyk (IBM Research, USA). Panelists: Samuel Ranellucci (Unbound Tech, Israel); Rosario Gennaro (CUNY, USA); abhi shelat (Northeastern University, USA).
