    Abstract = {Many security mechanisms are based on specific assumptions of identity and are vulnerable to attacks when these assumptions are violated. For example, impersonation is the well-known consequence when authenticating credentials are stolen by a third party. Another attack on identity occurs when credentials for one identity are purposely shared by multiple individuals, for example to avoid paying twice for a service. In this paper, we survey the impact of the Sybil attack, an attack against identity in which an individual entity masquerades as multiple simultaneous identities. The Sybil attack is a fundamental problem in many systems, and it has so far resisted a universally applicable solution.},
