Technical Summary This document describes an efficient scheme, ECCSI, for elliptic curve-based certificate-less signatures, primarily intended for use with Identifier Based Encryption (IBE) schemes such as [SAKKE]. (IBE schemes are motivated in part to avoid retrieval of certificates.) The algorithm is based upon the ECDSA algorithm. supplemented by ideas set out by Benjamin Arazi. Working Group Summary This is not the product of any working group. This submission is part of a family of specifications specifying a new mikey mode for use in 3GPP. Adoption by 3GPP is not assured. Document Quality There are no known commercial implementations. If adopted by 3GPP, a number of implementations are expected. Personnel Tim Polk is the Document Shepherd. Sean Turner is the Responsible AD. RFC Editor Note Please use the following boiler plate when this document is published: This document is a product of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
