Identity-Based Threshold Decryption

Authors: Joonsang Baek, Yuliang Zheng


In this paper, we examine issues related to the construction of
identity-based threshold decryption schemes and argue that it is
important in practice to design an identity-based threshold
decryption scheme in which a private key associated with an
identity is shared. A major contribution of this paper is to
construct the first identity-based threshold decryption scheme
secure against chosen ciphertext attack. A formal proof of
security of the scheme is provided in the random oracle model,
assuming the Bilinear Diffie-Hellman problem is computationally
hard. Another contribution of this paper is, by extending the
proposed identity-based threshold decryption scheme, to construct
a mediated identity-based encryption scheme secure against more
powerful attacks than those considered previously.
