A Practical Public Key Cryptosystem Provably Secure against Adaptive Chosen Ciphertext Attack
Ronald Cramer and Victor Shoup
Abstract: A new public key cryptosystem is presented that is provably secure
against adaptive chosen ciphertext attack.
The scheme is quite practical, and the proof of security relies
only on standard intractability assumptions.
Category / Keywords: public key encryption, adaptive chosen ciphertext attack.
