  • Chapter

Part of the IFIP — The International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT,volume 100)

Abstract

Certain undesirable features are identified in the ‘Structural proven signer ordering’ multisignature scheme of Kotzanikolaou, Burmester and Chrissikopoulos. This scheme is a modification of a previous multisignature scheme due to Mitomi and Miyaji.
