On security of a Certificateless Aggregate Signature Scheme

Limin Shen, Yinxia Sun

Abstract: Aggregate signatures are useful in special areas where the signatures on many different messages generated by many different users need to be compressed. Recently, Xiong et al. proposed a certificateless aggregate signature scheme provably secure in the random oracle model under the Computational Diffie-Hellman assumption. Unfortunately, by giving concrete attacks, we indicate that Xiong et al. aggregate signature scheme does not meet the basic requirement of unforgeability.
