We provide identity-based signature (IBS) schemes with tight security against adaptive adversaries, in the (classical or quantum) random oracle model (ROM or QROM), in both unstructured and structured lattices, based on the SIS or RSIS assumption. These signatures are short (of size independent of the message length). Our schemes build upon a work from Pan and Wagner (PQCrypto’21) and improve on it in several ways. First, we prove their transformation from non-adaptive to adaptive IBS in the QROM. Then, we simplify the parameters used and give concrete values. Finally, we simplify the signature scheme by using a non-homogeneous relation, which helps us reduce the size of the signature and get rid of one costly trapdoor delegation. On the whole, we get better security bounds, shorter signatures and faster algorithms.

Note: Some fixed typos; Details added about hash simulation in demonstrations of Theorems 2 and 3.
