Dusk Network Releases Research Paper: FORT Protocol for Self-Sovereign Authentication

Dusk researcher Xavier Salleras and two colleagues from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, designed a decentralized system to allow customers to prove their rights to use services (either online or in-person) without revealing sensitive information.

The FORT protocol details 5 steps that guide how the solution uses Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and Zero Knowledge Proving systems in a novel way to anonymously prove rights to Service Providers while avoiding the need for trusted third parties.

The paper also demonstrates how FORT could be easily deployed using blockchains, such as Ethereum or Dusk Network, and why integrating the latter would lead to a higher level of privacy. The FORT Protocol research paper can be found via the Dusk Resources page on the Dusk Network website.
