Identity-based signcryption is a useful cryptographic primitive that provides both authentication and confidentiality for identity-based crypto systems. It is challenging to build a secure identity-based signcryption scheme that can be proven secure in a standard model. In this paper, we address the issue and propose a novel construction of identity-based signcryption which enjoys IND-CCA security and existential unforgeability without resorting to the random oracle model. Comparisons demonstrate that the new scheme achieves stronger security, better performance efficiency and shorter system parameters. View Full-Text
