Unformatted text preview: bits long. (Of course, there has been considerable progress in factoring since then.) If each user chooses his own n and publishes it in a public key file, they can dispense with the arbitrator. However, this RSA-like variant makes the scheme considerably less convenient. Fiat-Shamir Signature Scheme
Turning this identification scheme into a signature scheme is basically a matter of turning Victor into a hash function. The primary benefit of the Fiat-Shamir digital signature scheme over RSA is speed: Fiat-Shamir requires only 1 percent to 4 percent of the modular multiplications of RSA. For this protocol, we’ll bring back Alice and Bob.

----------- The setup is the same as the identification scheme. Choose n to be the product of two large primes. Generate the public key, v1, v2,..., vk, and the private key, s1, s2,..., sk, such that si = sqrt (vi-1) mod n. (1) Alice picks t random integers between 1 and n: r1, r2,..., rt, and computes x1, x2,..., xt such that xi = ri2 mod n. (2) Alice hashes the concatenation of the message and the string of xis to generate a bit stream: H(m, x1, x2,..., xt). She uses the first k * t bits of this string as values of bij, where i goes from 1 to t, and j goes from 1 to k. (3) Alice computes y1, y2,..., yt, where yi = ri * (s1bi1 * s2bi2 *...* skbik) mod n (For each i,...
