Abstract: This paper presents a new multisignature scheme. The idea behind this scheme is that all authenticated users in the system are classified according to their security levels . Each level has its own trusted group manager. To generate the signature, the proposed system selects one of these levels .Each level consists of a group of users . Each user has its own private and public keys. In addition, this scheme implements the cascade encryption for the generated signature, and thus it is necessary to perform the cascade encryption to use a global private key for each level. The system also assigns trustworthiness score for each user to select the proper one to sign on the behalf of his/her group in that level. Finally, the generated multisignure is proved to be more secure and thus it can be used in sensitive applications.
