Abstract

In the (t, n) proxy signature scheme, the signature, signed by a signer originally, can be signed by t or more proxy signers out of a proxy group of n proxy signers. In this paper, we propose a new secure non-repudiable threshold proxy signature scheme with valid delegation period. In the scheme, the actual signers from the proxy group are known and can be identified. Furthermore, the proposed scheme is efficient in terms of computational complexity.
