This document describes the ZSS Short Signature Scheme for implementation from bilinear pairings on supersingular elliptic curves and Barreto-Naerhig (BN) ordinary elliptic curves. The ZSS Short Signature Scheme uses general cryptographic hash functions such as SHA-1 or SHA-2 and is efficient in terms of pairing operations.
