Practical IBC using Hybrid-Mode Problems: Factoring and Discrete Logarithm

Chandrashekhar Meshram


Shamir proposed the concept of the ID-based cryptosystem (IBC) in 1984. Instead of generating and publishing a public key for each user, the ID-based scheme permits each user to choose his name or network address as his public key. This is advantageous to public-key cryptosystems because the public-key verification is so easy and direct. In such a way, a large public key file is not required. Since new cryptographic schemes always face security challenges and many integer factorization problem and discrete logarithm based cryptographic systems have been deployed, therefore, the purpose of this paper is to design practical IBC using hybrid mode problems factoring and discrete logarithm. We consider the security against a conspiracy of some entities in the proposed system and show the possibility of establishing a more secure system.
