Abstract:
This paper puts forward a very efficient and secure digital signature algorithm based both on factoring and hash functions. Relying on both number theory and hash functions is not, per se, a novelty. Besides some important but not-too-practical exceptions (e.g., [1], [10], [13], [14], and [15], a combination of number theory and one-way hashing is employed by essentially all currently known signature schemes.
