Over the past few years, the concern of security is increasing day by day. Without proper protection, any part of any network can be susceptible to attacks or unauthorized activity. Ring Signature is a type of digital signature that enable a user to sign a message so that ring of possible signers is identified without revealing exactly which member of that ring actually generated the signature. Ring signatures are completely ad-hoc in nature there is no requirement of any central authority or coordination among different users. In this paper, we review summarize the study of ring signature schemes and scrutinize their relationships with other existing cryptographic schemes and discuss the uses and the mechanism used by ring signature.
