COMS W4995 Introduction to Cryptography October 30, 2003 Lecture 18: Digital Signature Schemes Lecturer: Tal Malkin Scribes: Hua Shuo Cai Summary Definition of Digital Signature scheme. Brief description of Paradox. And construc- tion of Lamport’s One-Time Signature for one bit message. 1 Authenticity How do you know that relieved message is from who you think it is? And that it wasn’t tampered with? Adv can intercept the cipher and change the cipher. We have two authentication schemes : DigitalSignature - Public Key World. MessageAuthenticationCode - Private Key World. 2 Digital Signature Definition 1 A Digital Signature Scheme is a triple of algorithms { GEN, SIGN, V ER } such that: GEN (The key generate algorithm) - a randomized algorithm that on input 1 k outputs ( PK, SK ) . SIGN (The Signing algorithm)- a (Possibly randomized algorithm) that on in- put SK , m output a signature σ . 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
