GARCIA, M.E. y VAZQUEZ, R.. Architecture of an Anonymous Electronic Bill: Electronic Payments Systems. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.3, pp. 71-80. ISSN 0718-0764. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642005000300010.
In this paper the structure of an organized sequence of bits that represents an electronic bill is proposed. Two procedures were considered in this work: the comparison and analysis of the current systems of electronic payment (First Virtual, Cybercash, Cybercoin, Millicent, eCash, Mondex and Smart Cards), and the analysis of the properties of a bank bill in Mexico. The generated electronic bill is built with Hash Functions, Digital Signatures and MAC Codes, and it is demonstrated that it has good attributes of anonymity, integrity and authenticity, necessary conditions of an electronic payment system.
