A new proxy signature scheme with revocation. (English) Zbl 1060.94037
Summary: In current proxy signature schemes, an original signer delegates her/his signing capability to a proxy signer, and then the proxy signer can sign messages on behalf of the original signer. Although these schemes have succeeded in proxy delegations, they are in general defective in proxy revocations. In this paper, we propose a proxy signature scheme which allows the original signer to revoke delegations whenever necessary.
