Super-Efficient Aggregating History-Independent Persistent Authenticated Dictionaries
Authenticated dictionaries allow users to send lookup requests to an untrusted server and get authenticated answers. Persistent authenticated dictionaries (PADs) add queries against historical versions. We consider a variety of different trust models for PADs and we present several extensions, including support for aggregation and a rich query language, as well as hiding information about the order in which PADs were constructed. We consider variations on treelike data structures as well as a design that improves efficiency by speculative future predictions. We improve on prior constructions and feature two designs that can authenticate historical queries with constant storage per update and several designs that can return constant-sized authentication results.
