Certificateless Encryption Schemes Strongly Secure in the Standard Model

Alexander W. Dent and Benoit Libert and Kenneth G. Paterson

Abstract: This paper presents the first constructions for certificateless encryption (CLE) schemes that are provably secure against strong adversaries in the standard model. It includes both a generic construction for a strongly secure CLE scheme from any passively secure scheme as well as a concrete construction based on the Waters identity-based encryption scheme.
