Cryptanalysis of Park-Lee Nominative Proxy Signature Scheme

Zhengjun Cao

Abstract: Park and Lee have proposed a digital nominative proxy signature scheme for mobile communication in [1]. They claimed that neither Origin signer nor Proxy agent can generate a valid signature solely. In this paper we show that Origin signer can generate a valid signature without the cooperation of the agent. In fact, the flaw comes from that Verifier dose not use the public key of Proxy agent in verifying phase. It's a serious designing error.
