Adaptively Secure Strong Designated Signature
Almost all the available strong designated verifier signature (SDVS) schemes are either insecure or inefficient for practical implementation. Hence, an efficient and secure SDVS algorithm is desired. In this paper, we propose an efficient strong designated verifier signature on identity-based setting, we call it ID-SDVS scheme. The proposed scheme is strong existentially unforgeable against adaptive chosen message and adaptive chosen identity attack under standard assumptions, the hardness of the decisional and computational Bilinear Diffie-Hellman Problem (BDHP). Though the unverifiability by a non-designated verifier and the strongness are essential security properties of a SDVS, the proofs for these properties are not provided in most of the literature on SDVS we reviewed. We provide the proofs of unverifiability and of strongness of the proposed scheme. Moreover, we show that the proposed scheme is significantly more efficient in the view of computation and operation time than the existing similar schemes.
