Information technology — Security techniques — Blind digital signatures — Part 1: General (Adopted ISO/IEC 18370-1:16 first edition, 2016-11-15)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 18370-1:2016 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document specifies principles, including a general model, a set of entities, a number of processes, and general requirements for blind digital signature mechanisms, as well as the following variants of blind digital signature mechanisms:
— blind signature mechanisms with partial disclosure;
— blind signature mechanisms with selective disclosure;
— traceable blind signature mechanisms.
It also contains terms, definitions, abbreviated terms and figure elements that are used in all parts of ISO/IEC 18370.
See Annex A for a comparison on the blind digital signature mechanisms.
