Qiang Wu, Zhaoyang Han, Ghulam Mohiuddin, Yongjun Ren
2023 Computer systems science and engineering  
Therefore, this paper designs a distributed timestamp mechanism based on continuous verifiable delay functions.  ...  Moreover, a digital blind signature based on elliptic curve cryptography is utilized to solve the problem of timestamp forgery in timestamp service.  ...  So, non-interactive proofs are generated via verifiable delay functions (VDF) random oracles.  ...

Towards Practical Attribute-Based Signatures [chapter]

Brinda Hampiholi, Gergely Alpár, Fabian van den Broek, Bart Jacobs
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose an ABS scheme based on the existing IRMA technology, extending the currently available IRMA devices with ABS functionality.  ...  This is why we put forward a new ABS technique based on the IRMA attribute-based authentication.  ...  An attribute-based signature within IRMA is essentially a non-interactive proof of knowledge of authentic attributes (see Section 3).  ...
