Pairing-based identification schemes

David Freeman

Abstract: We propose four different public-key identification schemes that make use of bilinear pairings, and prove their security under certain computational assumptions. Each of the schemes is more efficient and/or more secure than any known pairing-based identification scheme.

Category / Keywords: cryptographic protocols / identification scheme, pairings, elliptic curves, zero-knowledge proof of identity
