Efficient Chosen-Ciphertext Secure Identity-Based Encryption with Wildcards

James Birkett, Alexander W. Dent, Gregory Neven and Jacob Schuldt

Abstract: We propose new instantiations of chosen-ciphertext secure identity-based encryption schemes with wildcards (WIBE). Our schemes outperform all existing alternatives in terms of efficiency as well as security. We achieve these results by extending the hybrid encryption (KEM--DEM) framework to the case of WIBE schemes. We propose and prove secure one generic construction in the random oracle model, and one direct construction in the standard model.
