Revisit of KD04

Xianhui Lu, Xuejia Lai, Dake He,Guomin Li

Abstract: KD04 proposed by K. Kurosawa and Y. Desmedt is the most efficient public key encryption scheme provably secure against adaptive chosen ciphertext attack in standard model based on decision diffie-hellman problem. We proposed a simplify version of KD04 which is more efficient than KD04 while still can be proved to be secure against adaptive chosen ciphertext attack in standard model based on decision diffie-hellman problem.

Note: The new scheme is modified from K. Kurosawa and Y. Desmedt's scheme. It is similar to DHIES, while our scheme is provable secure in standard model under the DDH assumption.
