Abstract: In this article, an innovative method is proposed for the realisation of zero knowledge subscriber identification schemes that is suitable for multimedia content distribution applications. The fundamental principle underlying the proposed method is the concept of using one-way Boolean functions as transformations for the zero knowledge identification. This enables the increase of the speed of completion of the identification process by two to three orders of magnitude, compared to the corresponding speed when using modular arithmetic with large numbers. A method for the establishment of one way Boolean functions for zero knowledge identification has been developed. Two examples for the application of the proposed method are presented.
