I am a Ph.D. student focus on Attribute-Based Encryption and now reading the paper "Outsourcing the Decryption of ABE Ciphertexts", about the Figure 1, it gives a summary of some ABE scheme performance. But I don't understand of the index of "Ops," As I marked in the figure below (in yellow color).

What's the meaning of "Full Decrypt Ops" and "Out Dec Ops"? Does it stand for decryption time?

Below is the paper link, maybe many guys has read this paper :)

    $\begingroup$ Ops normally just stands for "operations", as in operations per second on a CPU or - more likely in this case - total number of executions of a specific algorithm or primitive. $\endgroup$ – Maarten Bodewes Feb 13 '17 at 13:31
