Cryptography for Privacy-enhanced Identity Management

I'm researching cryptography applications to identity management, mostly in the areas of privacy-enhancing technology (PET), zero-knowledge proofs of knowledge and anonymous credential systems. My overall goal is to establish a combination of strong authentication and privacy in identity management. Much of my past research has been on IBM's anonymous credential system Identity Mixer. Watch IBM's Identity Mixer YouTube video!. Beyond its integration into standardized identity federation protocols, I've contributed to a highly efficient attribute encoding for resource-constrained environments based on prime numbers and divisibility. I'm a contributor to the Identity Mixer community page.
