Certificateless Blind Signature Based on DLP

Kumar, Samir (2015) Certificateless Blind Signature Based on DLP. MTech thesis.



The most widely used digital signature in the real word application such as e cash e-voting etc. is blind signature. Previously the proposed blind signature follow the foot steps of public key cryptography(PKC) but conventional public key cryptography uses an affirmation of a relationship between public key and identity for the holder of the corresponding private key to the user, so certificate management is very difficult. To overcome this problem Identity based cryptography is introduced. But Identity based cryptography is inherited with key escrow problem. Blind signature with certificateless PKC(CLBS) used widely because it eliminate the problem related to certificate management of cryptography and the key escrow problem of ID based PKC. Because of large requirement of CLBS scheme in different applications many CLBS scheme is proposed, but they were based on bilinear pairing. However, the CLBS scheme based on bilinear pairing is not very satisfiable because bilinear pairing operations are very complicated. In our proposed scheme, we designed a certificateless blind signature scheme based on the discrete logarithmic problem. The proposed scheme fulfills all the security requirements of blind signature as well as certificateless signature. We analyzed security properties such as blindness, unforgeability and unlinkability. The proposed scheme has less computational cost. The hardness of discrete logarithmic problem (DLP) is used to prove the security of the proposed scheme.
