In this paper, a multi-signature for a specified group of verifiers is proposed. In the scheme, a group of signers together can create a digital multi-signature for a specified group of verifiers, and only all the verifiers in the group together can check the validity of the signature. The most important feature in the new signature is that transferability of the signature is not allowed.
