Blind Signature Based on Discrete Logarithm Type Cryptosystem
Discrete logarithm problem is an important trapdoor function to design asymmetric cryptosystem, and some fast public key cryptosystems have been designed based on it. In the paper, we introduced fast asymmetric cryptosystem into the designing and analyzing of blind signature, and presented improved blind signature schemes based on ECC (Elliptic Curves Cryptosystem). The trapdoor function of the blind signatures is based on ECDLP (Elliptic Curves Discrete Logarithm Problem), and the algorithms of the scheme make full use of the superiority of ECC, such as high efficiency and short key length. The improved blind signature schemes can achieve the same security level with less storing space, smaller communication band-width and less overheads regarding software and hardware application. Furthermore, the algorithms in the schemes can be generalized into other public key cryptosystems based on discrete logarithm problem without any influence to efficiency or security.
