Project description

Distributed signature schemes allow delegating signatures to a group of so-called trustees. Typical cryptographic approaches use arithmetic-based methods (e.g. RSA). In this project, we deal with the Dancing Bear scheme, the realization of a distributed signature scheme based on hash functions. One advantage of hash-based signature schemes is post-quantum security. Students implement Dancing Bear and will evaluate/benchmark it in the next step.
