Abstract
In proxy signature schemes with revocation, an original signer delegates his signing
capability to a proxy signer on behalf of the original signer and revokes delegations
whenever necessary. Currently, the security of the previous schemes are based on a
single hard problem such as factoring or discrete logarithms. These schemes appear
secure today but in a near future, if an adversary finds a solution to these hard problems,
the developed schemes will be no longer secure. To solve this problem we develop a
new proxy signature scheme with revocation based on two hard problems; factoring and
discrete logarithms. The new scheme offers higher level security than normal schemes
since it is hard for an adversary to solve the two hard problems simultaneously.
