On the Joint Security of Signature and Encryption Schemes under Randomness Reuse: Efficiency and Security Amplification
Afonso Arriaga and Manuel Barbosa and Pooya Farshim
Abstract: We extend the work of Bellare, Boldyreva and Staddon on the systematic analysis of randomness reuse to construct multi-recipient
encryption schemes to the case where randomness is reused across different cryptographic primitives. We find that through the additional binding introduced through randomness reuse, one can actually obtain a security amplification with respect to the standard black-box compositions, and achieve a stronger level of security. We introduce stronger notions of security for encryption and signatures,
where challenge messages can depend in a restricted way on the random coins used in encryption, and show that two variants of the KEM/DEM paradigm give rise to encryption schemes that meet this enhanced notion of security. We obtain a very efficient signcryption scheme that is
secure against insider attackers without random oracles.
Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / Randomness reuse, Signcryption, Insider Security.
