A designated verifier signature is a signature scheme in which signatures can only be verified by a single designated verifier who is chosen by the signer. Designated verifier signatures were first proposed in 1996 by Jakobsson Sako, Kazue Sako, and Russell Impagliazzo.[1] Proposed as a way to combine authentication and off-the-record messages, designated verifier signatures allow authenticated, private conversations to take place.[2]
