Abstract : Building a certification authority (CA) that is both decentralized and fully reliable is impossible. However, the limitation thus imposed on scalability is unacceptable for many types of information systems, such as e-government services. This paper proposes a solution to build a highly reliable CA, based on a DHT and a dedicated protocol ensuring a very low probability of arbitrary failure. Thus, in practice, false positives should never occur.
