Application: Private key security in the cloud (Patent ID: US20230412398A1)

The patent filed by The Boeing Co. describes techniques for providing an anonymous user signature on a message in a distributed decentralized network using a hardware security module and a certificate authority. The certificate authority obtains a credential for the user, including a certificate with a user public key and user attributes, and provides a signature on the message without revealing all user attributes, along with a zero-knowledge proof. The method involves generating cryptographic key pairs, accessing user secret keys, and ensuring compliance with presentation policies for disclosing user attributes.

The computer system described in the patent includes an electronic storage and a certificate authority with processors to perform operations related to obtaining user credentials, receiving signature requests, and providing anonymous user signatures with zero-knowledge proofs. The system can generate cryptographic key pairs, manage user secret keys stored in a hardware security module, and ensure that only the necessary subset of user attributes is revealed based on presentation policies. Additionally, the system is designed to operate within a blockchain network, enabling secure transactions such as cryptocurrency transactions while maintaining user anonymity and data privacy.
