Abstract

© 2021 IEEE.Hyperledger was set up with the aim of being an open-source platform targeted at accelerating industry-wide collaboration hosted by The Linux Foundation for developing robust and dependable blockchain and distributed ledger-based technological platform that may be applied across several industry sectors to improve the efficiency, performance, and transactions of different business operations. For these purpose, various distributed ledger frameworks and libraries have been developed inside the platform. In this paper, the Ursa cryptographic library, which is one of the libraries being developed in this platform to offer its users with dependable, secure, user friendly and plug-able cryptographic applications, has been examined and the performances of both the anonymous identity creation process and the presented cryptographic algorithms are examined.
