Fitting Square Pegs into Round Holes
September/October 2006 (vol. 4 no. 5)
pp. 64-66
Luther Martin, Voltage Security
By nature, cryptographers tend to be extremely cautious and conservative. From their perspective, spending time getting people to use a new cryptographic algorithm is roughly on par with getting involved in a land war in Asia. In some cases, however, the difficulty involved in developing a new algorithm is worth the effort. This is the case with identity-based encryption (IBE), a new type of public-key algorithm.
Index Terms:
IBE, secure email, identity-based encryption
