Reflow: Zero Knowledge Multi Party Signatures with Application to Distributed Authentication

Denis Roio, Alberto Ibrisevic, Andrea D'Intino


Reflow is a novel signature scheme supporting unlinkable signatures by multiple parties authenticated by means of zero-knowledge credentials. Reflow integrates with blockchains and graph databases to ensure confidentiality and authenticity of signatures made by disposable identities that can be verified even when credential issuing authorities are offline. We implement and evaluate Reflow smart contracts for Zenroom and present an application to produce authenticated material passports for resource-event-agent accounting systems based on graph data structures. Reflow uses short and computationally efficient authentication credentials and can easily scale signatures to include thousands of participants.
