Provably Secure and Subliminal-Free Variant of Schnorr Signature

Abstract : Subliminal channels present a severe challenge to information security. Currently, subliminal channels still exist in Schnorr signature. In this paper, we propose a subliminal-free variant of Schnorr signature. In the proposed scheme, an honest-but-curious warden is introduced to help the signer to generate a signature on a given message, but it is disallowed to sign messages independently. Hence, the signing rights of the signer is guaranteed. In particular, our scheme can completely close the subliminal channels existing in the random session keys of Schnorr signature scheme under the intractability assumption of the discrete logarithm problem. Also, the proposed scheme is proved to be existentially unforgeable under the computational Diffie-Hellman assumption in the random oracle model.
