Identification schemes are a common one-way authentication technique for a user to prove himself securely to a verifier. However, it is known that identification schemes based on the sigma-protocol are basically insecure against reset attacks. On the other-hand, attribute-based cryptography is a technique which allows for the secure implementation of access policies within a cryptosystem. In this paper, we report on the developments in the area of reset attacks for identification schemes as well as for attribute-based identification schemes. Then we put together a new idea to construct attribute-based identification schemes secure against reset attacks.
