CARDIS '02 Abstract

Smart Cards in Interaction: Towards Trustworthy Digital Signatures

Roger Kilian-Kehr and Joachim Posegga, SAP AG Corporate Research


We present approaches to raise the security level in the process of electronic signature creation by shifting as many tasks as possible involved in digitally signing data into a tamper-resistant and trustworthy smart card. We describe the fundamental technical principles our approach is based on, illustrate resulting design options, and compare the security of our approach with traditional electronic signature scenarios.
