In identity-based encryption (IBE) the public key of a user $A$ is some identity string $ID_A$, e.g., an email address. To encrypt a message for this user there is no need to retrieve an authentic copy of the public key, as it is in public key cryptography, but one can simply use the identity string ...

System parameters in identity-based encryption

In IBE schemes, the system parameters are $(q, \mathbb{G}, F, \hat{e}, P, Q, T, H_1)$. I don't know $\hat{e}$. For example, in type A pairing… ...

User revocation in Identity Based Encryption

I read several papers about user revocation in IBE recently. A common point is that when a user is revoked, some other valid users should also update their private keys. Does this mean that one ...

Example describing Baek and Zheng’s threshold identity-based decryption scheme

I am trying to work through an example of Baek and Zheng’s “threshold identity-based decryption scheme” and I tried a lot to solve this, but somewhere I’m doing something wrong. I hope someone can ...

How to compare different signature scheme's performance?

I am interested in comparing the computational performance of two signature schemes. However, I am unsure how to do that. My candidates are RSA and Shamir's ID Based Signature scheme. To get a fair ...

Could MITM securely identify identity?

Consider protocol like QUIC or MinimaLT which are essentially layer4 replacement for TCP/UDP (riding on top of UDP currently because of fear of random firewalls dropping new L4 protocol). From crypto ...

Security Level Same or not in key extraction of identity-based encryption

In identity-based encryption, key generation is performed using ($s$) as a secret key for identity a as in (eq.1) $\bullet$ $Priv_{a}=s.H(ID_{a})$(eq.1) If key is generated as follows, $\bullet$ ...

Identification schemes: Okamoto

I am reading Cryptography theory and practice by Stinson. The book is talking about the proof of security of Schnorr and Okamoto schemes. It claims that if an impersonater can find (in the case of the ...
