We support this in Gordian Envelopes using "Existence Proofs":

CLI Docs:
https://github.com/BlockchainCommons/envelope-cli-swift/blob/master/Docs/8-EXISTENCE-PROOFS.md
Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUQ-n9EZa0U

You can see an example of leveraging Existence Proofs for herd privacy in
our Educational Use Cases at:
