Identity-Based Encryption and Beyond
September/October 2008 (vol. 6 no. 5)
pp. 62-64
Luther Martin, Voltage Security
In June 2008, the US National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) held a workshop entitled, "Applications of Pairing Based Cryptography: Identity-Based Encryption and Beyond," in Gaithersburg, Maryland. In a series of 14 talks and two panel discussions, the presenters at this workshop discussed several aspects of identity-based encryption (IBE) and related pairing-based public-key schemes, including the history of the technology, applications for which it is well suited, and potential future developments. Copies of the presentations are now available on the workshop's Web site (www.nist.gov/ibe/). Close to 100 people from a wide range of security vendors, government agencies and academic institutions attended the event; this installment of Crypto Corner takes a closer look at all the events.
