We suggest a linkable ring signature scheme providing strong anonymity and weak linkabillty. We show that our linkable ring signature scheme can be used to construct a selectively linkable ring signature scheme, an efficient convertible (verifiable) ring signature scheme, and an efficient deductible ring signature scheme.
