Wireless body area network (WBAN) has been recognized as one of the promising wireless sensor technologies for improving healthcare service, thanks to its capability of seamlessly and continuously exchanging medical information in real time. However, the lack of a clear in-depth defense line in such a new networking paradigm would make its potential users(More)
We argue that traditional ID-based systems from pairings seem unsuitable for designing group signature schemes due to the problem of key escrow. In this paper we propose new ID-based public key systems without trustful KGC from bilinear pairings. In our new ID-based systems, if dishonest KGC impersonates an honest user to communicate with others, the user(More)
With the rapid development of cloud services, the techniques for securely outsourcing the prohibitively expensive computations to untrusted servers are getting more and more attention in the scientific community. Exponentiations modulo a large prime have been considered the most expensive operations in discrete-logarithm-based cryptographic protocols, and(More)
Data deduplication is a technique for eliminating duplicate copies of data, and has been widely used in cloud storage to reduce storage space and upload bandwidth. Promising as it is, an arising challenge is to perform secure deduplication in cloud storage. Although convergent encryption has been extensively adopted for secure deduplication, a critical(More)
Authenticated group key agreement problem is important in many modern collaborative and distributed applications. Recently, there are two ID-based authenticated group key agreement schemes have been proposed, one is Choi et al.’s [2] scheme, the other is Du et al.’s [3] scheme. They are all constructed from bilinear pairings based on Burmester and Desmedt(More)
Restrictive blind signatures allow a recipient to receive a blind signature on a message not known to the signer but the choice of message is restricted and must conform to certain rules. Partially blind signatures allow a signer to explicitly include necessary information (expiration date, collateral conditions, or whatever) in the resulting signatures(More)
Attribute-based encryption (ABE) has been widely studied recently to support fine-grained access control of shared data. Anonymous ABE, which is a relevant notion to ABE, further hides the receivers' attribute information in ciphertexts because many attributes are sensitive and related to the identity of eligible users. However, in existing anonymous ABE(More)
Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) is a promising cryptographic primitive which significantly enhances the versatility of access control mechanisms. Due to the high expressiveness of ABE policies, the computational complexities of ABE key-issuing and decryption are getting prohibitively high. Despite that the existing Outsourced ABE solutions are able to(More)
