A graph signature scheme is a digital signature scheme that allows a recipient to obtain a signature on a graph and subsequently prove properties thereof in zero-knowledge proofs of knowledge. While known to be expressive enough to encode statements from NP languages, one main use of graph signatures is in topology certification and confidentiality-preserving security assurance. In this paper, we present an ecient and provably secure graph signature scheme in the standard model with tight reduction. Based on the MoniPoly attribute-based credential system, this new graph signature scheme o↵ers zero-knowledge proofs of possession of the signature itself as well as confidentiality-preserving show proofs on logical statements such as the existence of vertices, graph connectivity or isolation.
