Maize rough dwarf disease (MRDD) is a devastating viral disease that results in considerable yield losses worldwide. Three major strains of virus cause MRDD, including maize rough dwarf virus in Europe, Mal de Río Cuarto virus in South America, and rice black-streaked dwarf virus in East Asia. These viral pathogens belong to the genus fijivirus in the(More)
A prominent issue in group signatures is revoking a group member's signing capability. To solve this issue, the group manager can send revocation messages only to signature verifiers, known as group signatures with verifier-local revocation (VLR). In existing VLR designs, the cost of revocation check grows linearly with the size of revocation messages. This(More)
In this paper, we present a new concept called an identity based ring signcryption scheme (IDRSC,). We argue that this is an important cryptographic primitive that must be used to protect privacy and authenticity of a collection of users who are connected through an ad-hoc network, such as Bluetooth. We also present an efficient IDRSC scheme based on(More)
The notion of strong designated verifier signature was put forth by Jakobsson, Sako and Impagliazzo in 1996, but the formal definition was defined recently by Saeednia, Kremer and Markowitch in 2003 and revisited by Laguil-laumie and Vergnaud in 2004. In this paper, we firstly propose the notion of short strong designated verifier signature scheme, and(More)
As part of the security within distributed systems, various services and resources need protection from unauthorized use. Remote authentication is the most commonly used method to determine the identity of a remote client. This paper investigates a systematic approach for authenticating clients by three factors, namely password, smart card, and biometrics.(More)
