Zhengjun Cao and Sherman S.M. Chow

Abstract: Deng and Zhao recently proposed a group signature scheme. We find that the scheme cannot satisfy all of the requirements of a secure group signature.

Category / Keywords: cryptographic protocols / group signature scheme, bilinear pairings, Gap-Diffie-Hellman group, unforgeability, anonymity, linkability, exculpability, traceability, coalition-resistance
