There is an intuitive connection between signcryption and one-pass key establishment. Although this has been observed previously, up to now there has been no formal analysis of this relationship. The main purpose of this paper is to prove that, with appropriate security notions, one-pass key establishment can be used as a signcryption KEM and vice versa. In order to establish the connection we explore the definitions for signcryption (KEM) and give new and generalised definitions. By making our generic construction concrete we are able to provide new examples of a signcryption KEM and a one-pass key establishment protocol.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
