This paper surveys the practical benefits and drawbacks of several identity-based encryption schemes based on bilinear pairings. After providing some background on identity-based cryptography, we classify the known constructions into a handful of general approaches. We then describe efficient and fully secure IBE and IBKEM instantiations of each approach, with reducibility to practice as the main design parameter. Finally, we catalogue the strengths and weaknesses of each construction according to a few theoretical and many applied comparison criteria.

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.
