Quantum-safe Anonymous Hierarchical Identity-Based Encryption with Traceable Identities
Computer Standards and Interfaces
Anonymous Identity Based Encryption (AIBET) scheme allows a tracer to use the tracing key to reveal the recipient's identity from the ciphertext while keeping other data anonymous. This special feature makes AIBET a promising solution to distributed IoT data security since it can preserve both the privacy and the anonymity of a communication network but still give the server the ability to revoke the anonymity of some specific users in necessary situations (such as when their illegal behavior are detected). In this paper, we construct an efficient quantum-safe Hierarchical Identity-Based cryptosystem with Traceable Identities (AHIBET) with fully anonymous ciphertexts. We prove the security of our AHIBET scheme under the Learning with Errors (LWE) problem in the standard model.
