A designated verifier signature is a signature scheme in which signatures can only be verified by a single designated verifier who is chosen by the signer. Designated verifier signatures were first proposed in 1996 by Jakobsson Sako, Kazue Sako, and Russell Impagliazzo. Proposed as a way to combine authentication and off-the-record messages, designated verifier signatures allow authenticated, private conversations to take place. A digital signature or digital signature scheme is a mathematical scheme for demonstrating the authenticity of a digital message or document. A valid digital signature gives a recipient reason to believe that the message was created by a known sender, and that it was not altered in transit. Digital signatures are commonly used for software distribution, financial transactions, and in other cases where it is important to detect forgery and tampering.
