GNU Taler


This talk will introduce GNU Taler, a new electronic payment system designed to provide a reasonable trade-off between privacy for citizens and transparency for governments. Building on fundamental ideas from Chaum's DigiCash for anonymous payments, GNU Taler introduces new cryptographic mechanisms to give change and refunds, and implements a modern protocol with dramatic usability improvements for secure online payments.
