Dear Colleagues:

We submitted a draft-00 on the BLS signature scheme.
We received some preliminary feedback from interested parties, and we plan
to continue updating it as we receive more.
Please take a look.
We appreciate any additional feedback!

Abstract

   The BLS signature scheme was introduced by Boneh-Lynn-Shacham in
   2001.  The signature scheme relies on pairing-friendly curves and
   supports non-interactive aggregation properties.  That is, given a
   collection of signatures (sigma_1, ..., sigma_n), anyone can produce
   a short signature (sigma) that authenticates the entire collection.
   BLS signature scheme is simple, efficient and can be used in a
   variety of network protocols and systems to compress signatures or
   certificate chains.  This document specifies the BLS signature and
   the aggregation algorithms.

Sergey
