Verified Multiple-Time Signature Scheme from One-Time Signatures and Timestamping

Denis Firsov and Henri Lakk and Ahto Truu

Abstract: Buldas, Laanoja, and Truu designed a family of server-assisted digital signature schemes (BLT signatures) built around cryptographic timestamping and forward-resistant tag systems. The original constructions had either expensive key generation phase or stateful client-side computations.

In this paper, we construct a stateless tag system with efficient key generation from one-time signature schemes. We prove that the proposed tag system is forward-resistant and when combined with cryptographic timestamping, it induces a secure (existentially unforgeable) multiple-time signature scheme. Our constructions are developed and verified using the EasyCrypt framework.
