Your use case is specific enough that you may be able to avoid full signatures and use a one-way function directly. When publishing the data you can use as a public key the hash of a random value $H(r)$, so that the full message is $(H(r), m, H(H(r) || m))$. Revealing $r$ is then seen as the revocation of that data, since that is the only message required. ...

One algorithm that is especially suited to one-use key pars is lamport signatures. Like many (all?) other signature functions, lamport signatures first hash the message to get it down to a size that is more reasonable to sign. For this use case, if you are willing to have $n^{2}$-bit signatures and $2n^{2}$-bit keys (public and private), you can sign a ...

What do you mean by better security? RSA was proved to be as difficult as prime factorisation and is thus one of the best understood public key cryptosystems. Also, since its widely used their implementations have withstood years of attacks. Since you are going for a one-time usage of the keys, speed is not of importance (or is it?). If you can handle the ...
