Supporting Multiparty Signing over Named Data Networking

Zhiyi Zhang, Siqi Liu, Randy King, Lixia Zhang

Modern digitally controlled systems require multiparty authentication and authorization to meet the desired security requirement. This paper describes the design and development of NDN-MPS, an automated solution to support multiparty signature signing and verification for NDN-enabled applications. NDN-MPS suggests several changes and extensions to the existing NDN security solutions. First, it introduces a new type of trust schema to support signing and verification for multiple signers under complex policies such as threshold schemes. Second, it extends the NDN signature format to accommodate multisignature schemes such as BLS signature. Third, it introduces a signature collection protocol to solicit signatures securely from multiple signers. We further evaluate NDN-MPS by assessing its security properties and measuring its performance.
