Unformatted text preview: s, J. Now, she wants to prove to Victor that those credentials are hers. To do this, she has to convince Victor that she knows B. Here’s the protocol: (1) Peggy picks a random integer r, such that r is between 1 and n - 1. She computes T = rv mod n and sends it to Victor. (2) Victor picks a random integer, d, such that d is between zero and v 1. He sends d to Peggy. (3) Peggy computes D = rBd mod n, and sends it to Victor. (4) Victor computes T´ = DvJd mod n. If T a T´ (mod n), then the authentication succeeds. The math isn’t that complex: T´ = DvJd = (rBd)vJd = rvBdvJd = rv(JBv)d = rv a T (mod n) since B was constructed to satisfy JBv a 1 (mod n) Previous Table of Contents Next Products | Contact Us | About Us | Privacy | Ad Info | Home Use of this site is subject to certain Terms & Conditions, Copyright © 1996-2000 EarthWeb Inc.

----------- Guillou-Quisquater Signature Scheme
This identification can be converted to a signature scheme, also suited for smart-card implementation [671,672]. The public and private key setup is the same as before. Here’s the protocol: (1) Alice picks a random integer r, such that r is between 1 and n - 1. She computes T = rv mod n. (2) Alice computes d = H(M,T), where M is the message being signed and H(x) is a one-way hash function. The d produced by the hash function must be between 0 and v - 1 . If the output of the hash function is not within this range, it must be reduced modulo v. (3) Alice computes D = rBd mod n. The signature consists of the message, M, the two calculated values, d and D...
