A Structured Multisignature Scheme from the Gap Diffie-Hellman Group
In this paper, the authors propose a new structured multisignature scheme that considers the signing order among co-signers. The proposed scheme can resolve signing structures of serial, parallel, and the mix of them. Moreover, the size and the verification of a structured multisignature is the same as those of an individual signature generated by any co-signer. Arithmetically, the proposed scheme makes use of the Gap Diffie-Hellman (GDH) signature scheme recently presented by Boneh, Shacham, and Lynn. Due to the underlying GDH group, our scheme has the merits of simplicity in construction and efficiency in performance.
New Proxy Signature, Proxy Blind Signature and Proxy Ring Signature Schemes from Bilinear Pairing
Proxy signatures are very useful tools when one needs to delegate his/her signing capability to other party. After Mambo $et\ al.$'s first scheme was announced, many proxy signature schemes and various types of proxy signature schemes have been proposed. Due to the various applications of the bilinear pairings in cryptography, there are many ID-based signature schemes have been proposed. In this paper, we address that it is easy to design proxy signature and proxy blind signature from the conventional ID-based signature schemes using bilinear pairings, and give some concrete schemes based on existed ID-based signature schemes. At the same time, we introduce a new type of proxy signature -- proxy ring signature, and propose the first proxy ring signature scheme based on an existed ID-based ring signature scheme.
An identity-based ring signature scheme from bilinear pairings
Chih-Yin Lin Tzong-Chen Wu
At the conference Asiacrypt 2001, Rivest, Shamir and Tauman firstly addressed the concept of ring signature. In this paper we propose an identity-based ring signature scheme from bilinear pairings. As compared with the Zhang-Kim scheme (presented at the conference Asiacrypt 2002), our scheme is more efficient in computation and requires fewer pairing operations.
