Multiple-link Blockchain

Abstract

A system includes circuitry for rewriting blockchains in a non-tamper-evident or tamper-evident operation using a key secret held by a trusted party. The blockchains may include a series of blocks secured by multiple integrity codes that may prevent non-tamper-evident rewrites by non-trusted parties that are not in possession of the key secret. In some cases, the key may allow valid but tamper-evident rewrites of the blockchain by trusted entities. Further, in some implementations, tamper-evident rewrites may be converted to non-tamper-evident rewrites through multiple-party ratification.
