I am trying to decide whether to encrypt data by using attribute-based encryption or use an encryption algorithm such as AES before using attribute-based encryption.

Is attribute-based encryption used to encrypt data and apply access control, or only do the latter?

    $\begingroup$ Attribute-Based Encryption schemes provide the confidentiality of the message and you don't need to pre-encrypt the data. $\endgroup$ – Mahdi Nov 12 '19 at 8:43
  • $\begingroup$ @Mahdi, confidentiality means hide the original data with providing access control, so if i want to encrypt data by using Attribute based Encryption means that data is encrypted like using any ther encryption algorithm e.g. AES. $\endgroup$ – user74341 Nov 12 '19 at 21:15
