An efficient semantically secure elliptic curve cryptosystem based on KMOV
David Galindo and Sebastià Martín and Paz Morillo and Jorge L. Villar
Abstract: We propose an elliptic curve scheme over the ring $\entq$, which is efficient and semantically secure in the standard model. There appears to be no previous elliptic curve cryptosystem based on factoring that enjoys both of these properties. KMOV scheme has been used as an underlying primitive
to obtain efficiency and probabilistic encryption. Semantic security of the scheme is based on a new decisional assumption, namely, the Decisional Small-$x$ $e$-Multiples Assumption. Confidence on this assumption is also discussed.
Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / elliptic curve cryptosystem, semantic security.
