This article introduces a designated receiver signature scheme which is carrying a characteristic that let the signature to be verified by the cooperation of the signature recipient only. This proposed digital signature scheme is aimed to secure the confidentiality of the signature recipient in many uses since the signed document hold too important data regarding recipient personally. We claim that the proposed scheme is scalable, secure, completely dynamic and more efficient than the already existed schemes.
