Quantum Encryption with Certified Deletion: Public Key and Attribute-Based

Ryo Nishimaki and Takashi Yamakawa

Abstract: Broadbent and Islam (TCC '20) proposed a quantum cryptographic primitive called quantum encryption with certified deletion. In this primitive, a receiver in possession of a quantum ciphertext can generate a classical certificate that the encrypted message is deleted. Though they proved that their construction is information theoretically secure, a drawback is that the construction is limited to the setting of one-time symmetric key encryption (SKE) where a sender and receiver have to share a common key in advance and the key can be used only once. In this paper, we construct a (reusable-key) public key encryption (PKE) and attribute-based encryption (ABE) with certified deletion. Our PKE with certified deletion is constructed assuming the existence of IND-CPA secure PKE, and our ABE with certified deletion is constructed assuming the existence of indistinguishability obfuscation and one-way function.
