Abstract

Identity Based encryption (IBE) is a public-key encryption system where any
string can function as a public key.  IBE systems imply chosen ciphertext
secure encryption, searching on encrypted data, secure signatures, and many
other cryptographic primitives. Over the past decade three families of IBE
constructions were developed: one family uses pairing-friendly elliptic
curve, another uses arithmetic modulo composites, and a third uses integer
lattices.   This talk will survey some recent IBE constructions and
highlight a few central open problems in this area.
