Abstract
Anonymity is one of the important services that must be available to users in the digital world as long as they behave honestly.Users’communicationmustbekeptauthenticatedandanonymous unless malicious behaviors are detected. In this case the accused user’s clear identity must be traced and revealed by the system to solve accusations. Enterprise Digital Rights Management (E-DRM) protects business digital applications by allowing an author in an organization to securely upload his confidential package/file(s) and store the contents in a private way on secure servers. This is done in a way that – later – allows an authorized user who is able to prove his authorization for the package to an authorization authority to download and use these contents in a private way. In this paper, we extend our previously proposed E-DRM protocols and propose an E-DRM protocol that allows authorized users to upload, store and download packages in an efficiently secure, anonymous and authenticated way. On the other hand, in case of an accusation or a dispute, our system is able to trace the user to his clear identity to solve accusations.
