We currently have five questions about the the Lamport one-time signature scheme tagged with . Every single one of them is also tagged with . While the tags differ somewhat in scope (there are other hash-based signature schemes besides Lamport's original one, although AFAIK they're all more or less directly based on it), I don't believe there's really enough difference to support two separate tags.

I could just edit the tag out of all the questions (like I just did for the single-question tag ), but it would be nice to see it retained as a synonym, so that someone typing "lamport" into the tag field would get useful suggestions. I don't have the tag weight to even suggest the synonym, though, much less get it approved (do we actually have any tag synonyms approved through community voting yet?), hence this meta post.

  • $\begingroup$ It doesn't look like we have any non-moderator approved tag synonyms yet. If there is no protest in the next some days, I'll create this one (and also might approve some other ones proposed by you and others). $\endgroup$ Aug 30, 2013 at 19:42
