Re-Randomized FROST

Authors: Conrado P. L. Gouvea, Chelsea Komlo


We define a (small) augmentation to the FROST threshold signature scheme that additionally allows for re-randomizable public and secret keys. We build upon the notion of re-randomizable keys in the literature, but tailor this capability when the signing key is secret-shared among a set of mutually trusted parties. We do not make any changes to the plain FROST protocol, but instead define additional algorithms to allow for randomization of the threshold public key and participant’s individual public and secret key shares.

We show the security of this re-randomized extension to FROST with respect to the algebraic one-more discrete logarithm (AOMDL) problem in the random oracle model, the same security assumptions underlying plain FROST.
