Improved Digital Signature Algorithm

Abstract—In this brief paper, a digital signature algorithm is developed which is an improved version of the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) proposed by the NIST. The security of the improved version is the same as the original one while it benefits the signature signer and performs more efficiently.
