This thesis' major contribution is to propose an attribute based authentication scheme (AAS). An A AS scheme is a new cryptosystem that extends the field of public key cryptography and more precisely digital signatures. An AAS scheme allows a verifier lo decide on the set ol' attributes (b)he would like the signer to possess. The verifier sends the request to a group of possible signers as a monotone boolean expression. Any member with sufficient attributes can sign.
