Abstract: This paper presents a practical digital signature scheme to be used in conjunction with network coding. Furthermore, the authors| idea simultaneously provides authentication and detects malicious nodes that intentionally corrupt content on the network.

Keywords: network coding; erasure coding; digital signatures; secure homomorphic signatures; elliptic curves; BLS signatures; public key cryptography; authentication; malicious nodes.
