Security-Mediated Certificateless Cryptography
We introduce the notion of security-mediated certificateless (SMC) cryptography. This allows more lightweight versions of mediated cryptography while maintaining the ability for instantaneous revocation of keys. Moreover, our solutions avoid key escrow, which has been used in all previous mediated cryptography algorithms. We provide a model of security against a fully-adaptive chosen ciphertext attacker, who may be a rogue key generation centre or any coalition of rogue users. We present a generic construction and also a concrete algorithm based on bilinear pairings. Our concrete scheme is more efficient than the identity-based mediated encryption scheme of Baek and Zheng in PKC 2004 which is provably secure in a comparable security model. In addition, our proposals can be easily extended to support distributed security mediators.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
