In this work, we propose a proxy-protected proxy multi-signature scheme based on EllipticCurve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA), which aims at providing data authenticity,integrity, and non-repudiation to satisfy the basic properties of partial delegation proxy signaturedescribed by Mambo et al. as well as strong proxy signature properties defined byLee et. al. The proposed signing/verifying scheme combines the advantages of proxyprotectedsignature and multi-signature scheme. The security of
more » ... the proposed schemes isbased on the difficulty of breaking the elliptic curve discrete logarithm problem (ECDLP).The scheme proposed is faster and secure than the multi-signature based on factoring ordiscrete logarithm problem (DLP). The final multi-signature of a message can be verifiedindividually for each signer or collectively for a subgroup or entire group as well. Finally,the proposed proxy-protected proxy multi-signature schemes can be used in E-commerceand E-government application, which can be implemented using low power and small processingdevices.
