Abstract

The carbon trading market can promote “carbon peaking” and “carbon neutrality” at low cost, but carbon emission quotas face attacks such as data forgery, tampering, counterfeiting, and replay in the electricity trading market. Certificateless signatures are a new cryptographic technology that can address traditional cryptography’s general essential certificate requirements and avoid the problem of crucial escrow based on identity cryptography. However, most certificateless signatures still suffer from various security flaws. We present a secure and efficient certificateless signing scheme by examining the security of existing certificateless signature schemes. To ensure the integrity and verifiability of electricity carbon quota trading, we propose an electricity carbon quota trading scheme based on a certificateless signature and blockchain. Our scheme utilizes certificateless signatures to ensure the validity and nonrepudiation of transactions and adopts blockchain technology to achieve immutability and traceability in electricity carbon quota transactions. In addition, validating electricity carbon quota transactions does not require time-consuming bilinear pairing operations. The results of the analysis indicate that our scheme meets existential unforgeability under adaptive selective message attacks, offers conditional identity privacy protection, resists replay attacks, and demonstrates high computing and communication performance.
