An Efficient ID-KEM Based On The Sakai-Kasahara Key Construction

L. Chen and Z. Cheng and J. Malone-Lee and N.P. Smart

Abstract: We describe an identity based key encapsulation mechanism (ID-KEM). It is possible to use this ID-KEM to build a secure identity based encryption scheme using the techniques of Bentahar et al. The resulting encryption scheme has a number of performance advantages over existing methods.
