A digital signature protocol achieves the least energy consumption, the fastest signature generation, and the smallest signature among its ECC-based counterparts. The method of authenticating is also immune to side channel attacks aiming elliptical curve operations/exponentiations as well as to weak pseudo random number generators at the signer's side. A security system for authenticating the updating of computer records includes a network of member computers in data communication with each other and calculating an assigned portion of a commitment code used for the authenticating the secure data at the verifier device by completing, among the server computers, a plurality of discrete verification tasks for a single authentication code (Râ) associated with an aggregated commitment code (R), aggregating at the verifier device, the aggregated commitment code (R), and verifying the secure data at the verifier device.
