Hi there. It may not be the best place to ask this question, but here goes:

I have made a study on digital signatures, especially on the Schnorr digital signature, and I was just wandering if there is some way I can find names of actual (known) applications that have applied and used this kind of digital signature.

Haven't been able to find anything by myself, so any help is appreciated.

Thanks, and best regards !

I think this scheme is not widespread because of patent issues. It is similar to DSA which is frequently used. Maybe it is used for some smartcards because of its better performance. It's probably the best to ask again on – Stephan Müller Jan 9 '13 at 11:56
Thanks for the reply, will do. – Raul Rene Jan 9 '13 at 13:37
