Abstract:
This paper describes a method for escrowing cryptographic keys, which we call Failsafe Key Escrow (FKE). The method is substantially more secure than alternative such as the Fair Public Key Cryptosystem approach advocated by Micali, and it is particular well suited for use in escrowing DSS keys.
