Privacy and Verifiability in Certificate TransparencySarah Meiklejohn (University College London, UCL)

In recent years, there has been increasing recognition of the benefits of having services provide auditable logs of data, as demonstrated by the deployment of Certificate Transparency and the development of other transparency projects. Despite their success, extending the current form of these projects can yield improved guarantees in terms of verifiability, efficiency, and privacy.

This talk touches on these considerations by discussing efficient solutions for verifiability, in the form of a gossip protocol and a new verifiable data structure, and the difficulties of achieving privacy-preserving auditing.
