Faster Batch Forgery Identification
Source: University of Illinois
The authors' goal in this paper is to minimize the cost of elliptic-curve signature verification. Batch signature verification detects whether a batch of signatures contains any forgeries. Batch forgery identification pinpoints the location of each forgery. Existing forgery-identification schemes vary in their strategies for selecting sub-batches to verify (individual checks, binary search, combinatorial designs, etc.) and in their strategies for verifying sub-batches. This paper exploits synergies between these two levels of strategies, reducing the cost of batch forgery identification for elliptic-curve signatures.
