A Note on Girault’s Self-Certified Model

Authors: Shahrokh Saeednia


In this paper, we describe an important shortcoming of
the first self-certified model proposed by Girault,
that may be exploited by the authority to compute users’ secret keys.
We also show, while it is possible to make the attack ineffective by
taking additional precautions, the resulting model loses all merits
of the original model and does no longer meet the primary
contribution of the self-certified notion.
