The ElGamal Signature Scheme is a digital signature scheme which is based on the difficulty of computing discrete logarithms. It was described by Taher ElGamal in 1984.

A variant developed by NSA, Digital Signature Algorithm, is a more widely used algorithm compared to the the ElGamal Signature Scheme.
