1. An efficient, stateless `hash-and-sign' signature scheme in the *standard model* (i.e., no random oracles), and
2. The first *hierarchical* identity-based encryption (HIBE) scheme (also in the standard model) that does not rely on bilinear pairings.
Interestingly, the abstract properties of bonsai trees seem to have no known realization in conventional number-theoretic cryptography.
