We propose a quantum blind signature scheme that achieves perfect security under the assumption
of an honest o®line repository. The security of the protocol also relies on perfect
private quantum channels, which are achievable using quantum one-time pads with keys shared
via a quantum key distribution (QKD) protocol. The proposed approach ensures that signatures
cannot be copied and that the sender must compromise to a single message, which are important
advantages over classical protocols for certain applications.
