Advanced cryptographic authorization coming to CKB post-hard fork
Check out what is possible with soon to be introduced exec functionality!
The concept of “chained lock scripts" was recently proposed on the Nervos Talk forum.
The purpose of chained lock scripts is to serialize multiple lock scripts using the exec function from Linux, so that the different lock scripts can be used to verify signatures created using different crypto primitives.
A chained lockscript looks like a normal lockscript, you can even use it like a normal lock script. Each chained lock script contains validation code for one particular signature algorithm, for example, we might have chained lockscripts for secp256k1, secp256r1, RSA, Schnorr, BLS, etc.
A dApp can build an entrypoint lock script first, which is in charge of general validation of the transaction, and then proceed with confirmation of the signatures using the different chained lock scripts.
By decoupling the lock script of the cell and actual signature verification logic, CKB makes it convenient for dApps to support a variety of cryptography and delivers the greatest flexibility for innovation.
Nervos applies the RFC (Request for Comments) process for implementing every building block of the protocol. There were 27 previous RFCs, which can be found here.
