Abstract: Group signature scheme is a cryptographic primitive that allows its registered group members to generate signatures on behalf of the whole group without revealing their identity. Ling et al. (2018) proposed the first constant size group signature scheme using ideal lattices, where signatures size is independent of number of users N in the group. This is a partial dynamic scheme that supports only registration of new users. It does not allow revocation of group users. In this paper, we construct an ideal lattice based constant size dynamic group signature scheme that supports both revocation and registration. In addition, an efficient revocation technique based on time bound signing keys is proposed to reduce the verification cost. The security of the proposed scheme is proved in the random oracle model based on the hardness of ring short integer solution (RSIS) and ring learning with errors (RLWEs) assumptions.
