Abstract Blind signature is the concept to ensure anonymity of e-coins. Untracebility and unlinkability are two main properties of real coins and should also be mimicked electronically. A user has to fulll above two properties of blind signature for permission to spend an e-coin. During the last few years, asymmetric cryptosystems based on curve based cryptographiy have become very popular, especially for embedded applications. Elliptic curves(EC) are a special case of hyperelliptic curves (HEC). HEC operand size is only a fraction of the EC operand size. HEC cryptography needs a group order of size at least 2160. In particular, for a curve of genus two eld Fq with p 280 is needeed. Therefore, the eld arithmetic has to be performed using 80-bit long operands. Which is much better than the RSA using 1024 bit key length. The hyperelliptic curve is best suited for the resource constraint environments. It uses lesser key and provides more secure transmisstion of data.
