Practical Group Signatures without Random Oracles
Giuseppe Ateniese and Jan Camenisch and Susan Hohenberger and Breno de Medeiros
Abstract: We provide a construction for a
group signature scheme that is provably secure in a universally composable framework,
within the standard model with trusted parameters.
Our proposed scheme is fairly simple and its efficiency falls
within small factors of the most efficient group signature schemes
with provable security in any model (including random oracles).
Security of our constructions require new
cryptographic assumptions, namely the Strong LRSW, EDH, and Strong SXDH assumptions. Evidence for any assumption we introduce is provided by proving hardness in the generic group model.
Our second contribution is the first definition of security for group signatures based on the simulatability
of real protocol executions in an ideal setting that captures
the basic properties of unforgeability, anonymity, unlinkability, and exculpability for
group signature schemes.
Category / Keywords: Group signatures, random oracles, standard model, group signature security definition, ideal functionality.
