Identity Based Encryption (IBE) is a type of public key encryption and has been intensely researched in the past decade. Identity-Based Encryption summarizes the available research for IBE and the main ideas that would enable users to pursue further work in this area. This book will also cover a brief background on Elliptic Curves and Pairings, security against chosen Cipher text Attacks, standards and more. Advanced-level students in computer science and mathematics who specialize in cryptology, and the general community of researchers in the area of cryptology and data security will find Identity-Based Encryption a useful book. Practitioners and engineers who work with real-world IBE schemes and need a proper understanding of the basic IBE techniques, will also find this book a valuable asset.
Practitioners and engineers who have to implement real-world IBE schemes, and need a proper understanding of the basic IBE techniques, will find this book a valuable asset Covers Elliptic Curves and Pairings, obtaining security against chosen Ciphertext Attacks, standards and more Peter Wild, Editor and Chief of Springer's Journal Designs Codes and Cryptography, remarks "This is a very active area, and it would be useful to have a reference text and to provide a common basis for the study of these systems. This would be a pioneering contribution in book form."
