New Convertible Authenticated Encryption Scheme with Message Linkages

Subramanyam, K S and Rout, Dhananjay (2015) New Convertible Authenticated Encryption Scheme with Message Linkages. BTech thesis.



The digital signature provides the signing message with functions like authentication, integration and non-repudiation. However, in some of the applications, the signature has to be verified only by specific recipients of the message and it should be hidden from the public. For achieving this, authenticated encryption systems are used. Authenticated Encryption schemes are highly helpful to send a confidential message over an insecure network path. In order to protect the recipients benefit and for ensuring non-repudiation, we help the receiver to change the signature from encrypted one to an ordinary one. With this we avoid any sort of later disputes. Few years back, Araki et al. has proposed a convertible authenticated scheme for giving a solution to the problem. His scheme enables the recipient to convert the senders signature into an ordinary one. However, the conversion requires the cooperation of the signer. In this thesis, we present a convertible authenticated encryption scheme that can produce the ordinary signature without the cooperation of the signer with a greater ease. Here, we display a validated encryption plan using message linkages used to convey a message. For the collector's advantage, the beneficiary can surely change the encrypted signature into an ordinary signature that which anyone can check. A few attainable assaults shall be examined, and the security investigation will demonstrate that none of the them can effectively break the proposed plan.
