Short signature is an essential component in cryptography. Short digital signatures are needed in environments where a human is asked to manually key in the signature. In this paper, the authors propose a new short signature scheme with weil pairing. Also, they analyze security and efficiency of their scheme. Security of their scheme is based on expressing the torsion point of curve into linear combination of its basis points; it is more complicated than solving ECDLP (Elliptic Curve Discrete Logarithm Problem). They claim that their new short signature scheme is more secure and efficient than the existing scheme of the researcher based on bilinear pairing.
