ID-based Signatures from Pairings on Elliptic Curves

Kenneth G. Paterson

Abstract: We present an efficient identity-based signature scheme which makes use of bilinear pairings on elliptic curves. Our scheme is similar to the generalized ElGamal signature scheme. We consider the security of our scheme.
