ABSTRACT In current proxy signature schemes, an original signer delegates her/his signing capability to a proxy signer, and then the proxy signer can sign messages on behalf of the original signer. Although these schemes have succeeded in proxy delegations, they are in general defective in proxy revocations. In this paper, we propose a proxy signature scheme which allows the original signer to revoke delegations whenever necessary.

    ABSTRACT: In current proxy signature schemes, an original signer delegates her signing capability to a proxy signer, and then the proxy signer can sign messages on behalf of the original signer. Although these schemes have succeeded in proxy delegations, they share a common problem. That is, a verifier cannot ascertain that a proxy signature was signed by the proxy signer during the valid delegation period. Additionally, these schemes do not support revocations. In this paper, we proposed a new time-stamping proxy signature scheme using time-stamping service to resolve the above problems. The security and performance of the proposed scheme are also analyzed.

    ABSTRACT: Proxy signature schemes allow an original signer to delegate his signing rights to a proxy signer. Most proxy signature schemes have succeeded for proxy delegations and they are considered very useful methods when one needs to delegate his signing power to other person in digital business. However, many proxy signature schemes have the defects that cannot solve proxy revocation problems. Moreover, they cannot provide the immediate revocation, even if a proxy signer colludes with any malicious attacker. In this paper, we propose a mediated proxy signature scheme with fast revocation. Our scheme solves the weaknesses of most proxy signature schemes and satisfies the security requirements for proxy signature scheme. And it also provides an effective proxy revocation whenever the original signer wants or signer’s key is compromised.

    ABSTRACT: Proxy signature allows an original signer to delegate his signing capacity to a proxy signer. Then the proxy signer creates a signature on behalf of the original singer. When a receiver verifies proxy signature, he verifies the signature itself and original signer's delegation together. In this paper, the present existent problem of proxy revocation is analyzed. Two drawbacks of the Wang's proxy signature scheme based on elliptic curve are given. Then an improved scheme is presented. On the base of this improved scheme, a secure proxy blind signature scheme based on elliptic curve with proxy revocation is proposed by applying Abe-Okamoto partially blind signature. By embedding non-blind time-stamp in the signatures, the original signer can revoke delegation whenever necessary and all valid proxy signatures generated earlier can longer be verified. Besides having the basic properties of the proxy signature, the proposed schemes solve proxy revocation without trustee, and prevent public key substitution attack, original signer's forgery as well as proxy misuse.
