Efficient Convertible User Designating Confirmer Partially Blind Signature with Provable Security
Any one who knows the signer’s public key can verify the validity of a given signature in partially blind signature schemes. This verifying universality may be used by cheats if the signed message is sensitive or personal. To solve this problem, a new convertible user designating confirmer partially blind signature, in which only the designated confirmer (designated by the user) and the user can verify and confirm the validity of given signatures and convert given signatures into publicly verifiable ones, is proposed. Compared with Huang et al.’s scheme, the signature size is shortened about 25% and the computation quantity is reduced about 36% in the proposed scheme. Under random oracle model and intractability of Discrete Logarithm Problem the proposed scheme is provably secure.
