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.
