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.
