Accumulator's size is growing?


#1

Hi,

I just read about revocation process and I have a question about the accumulator.
The document is in INDY project (https://github.com/hyperledger/indy-hipe/tree/master/text/0011-cred-revocation).

My question is that when there are a lot of vaild certifications, is the accumulator’s size growing proportionally because accumulator is made of product of factors?

thank you.

No, the accumulator never changes in size. To understand why, it may be helpful to refer to this post on Stack Overflow: https://crypto.stackexchange.com/a/66407
