With more and more businesses shifting emphasis towards the Internet, new ways of protecting transacting parties are needed in the world of e-commerce. This unique, new resource shows you how to create, collect, validate and maintain cryptographic evidence, such as digital signatures, in order to support the settlement of possible electronic transaction disputes. It presents a systematic description of non-repudiation services, examples on the integration of these services into specific e-commerce applications, and a detailed analysis and comparison of typical non-repudiation mechanisms. The book investigates fundamental aspects of non-repudiation, including general goals and typical electronic transaction disputes. You get a thorough overview of the types of cryptographic evidence, the validity of evidence used in dispute resolution, and the technical infrastructure and legal framework for the provision of non-repudiation services in electronic commerce. Moreover, this book defines the fairness in non-repudiation services, presents typical fair protocols, and reviews related ISO standards.
