We introduce Auditable Version Control Systems (AVCS), which are VCS systems designed to function under an adversarial setting. We propose an AVCS scheme for skip delta-based VCS systems, which takes a pragmatic approach and is designed for real-world VCS systems. Our prototype built on top of Apache Subversion (SVN) shows a modest decrease in performance compared to a regular (non-secure) SVN system.
