40<h4>reclaimID alternative GNS-based encryption</h4>
41<p>
42reclaimID is a decentralized identity system build on top of the GNU
43Name System.
44Currently, it uses an encryption scheme called attribute-based encryption.
45However, through the clever use of GNS's built in record encryption,
46it is possible to
47<ol>
48<li> Improve performance by reducing encryption overhead</li>
49<li> Reduce dependencies</li>
50</ol>
51This project also includes two separate, smaller tasks:
52<ul>
53<li> Performance improvements to the out-of-band authorization flow (OpenID Connect) to</li>
54<li> Webextension which allows reclaimID to be used without the need of
55a GNS proxy.
56</ul>
57The two smaller tasks are optional and may be dropped in case the student
58encounters any unforseen complications when implementing the main task.
