CCA2 Secure IBE: Standard Model Efficiency through Authenticated Symmetric Encryption
Eike Kiltz and Yevgeniy Vahlis
Abstract: We propose two constructions of chosen-ciphertext secure identity-based encryption (IBE) schemes. Our schemes have a security proof in the standard model, yet they offer performance competitive with all known random-oracle based schemes.
The efficiency improvement is obtained by combining modifications of the IBE schemes
by Waters and Gentry with authenticated symmetric encryption.
