Supporting Multiparty Signing over Named Data Networking. (arXiv:2106.04030v1 [cs.CR])

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
