Abstract

This paper illustrates and scans the limits of the use of anonymous credentials (e.g. Idemix) on smart phones to preserve the user’s privacy. A prototypical application with strong privacy requirements, ePoll, will be presented in detail. To ease the implementation of such applications, a specialized identity management framework has been developed. A first prototype of the ePoll application was built for workstations. Later it was ported to a smart phone to evaluate the performance of anonymous credential protocols in this setting.
