Legally Fair Contract Signing Without Keystones

Abstract : In two-party computation, achieving both fairness and guaranteed output delivery is well known to be impossible. Despite this limitation , many approaches provide solutions of practical interest by weakening somewhat the fairness requirement. Such approaches fall roughly in three categories: " gradual release " schemes assume that the aggrieved party can eventually reconstruct the missing information; " optimistic schemes " assume a trusted third party arbitrator that can restore fairness in case of litigation; and " concurrent " or " legally fair " schemes in which a breach of fairness is compensated by the aggrieved party having a digitally signed cheque from the other party (called the keystone). In this paper we describe and analyse a new contract signing paradigm that doesn't require keystones to achieve legal fairness, and give a concrete construction based on Schnorr signatures which is compatible with standard Schnorr signatures and provably secure.
