Receiver-Anonymity in Reradomizable RCCA-Secure Cryptosystems Resolved 📺
In this work, we resolve the open problem raised by Prabhakaran and Rosulek at CRYPTO 2007, and present the first anonymous, rerandomizable, Replayable-CCA (RCCA) secure public key encryption scheme. This solution opens the door to numerous privacy-oriented applications with a highly desired RCCA security level. At the core of our construction is a non-trivial extension of smooth projective hash functions (Cramer and Shoup, EUROCRYPT 2002), and a modular generic framework developed for constructing Rand-RCCA-secure encryption schemes with receiver-anonymity. The framework gives an enhanced abstraction of the original Prabhakaran and Rosulek’s scheme (which was the first construction of Rand-RCCA-secure encryption in the standard model), where the most crucial enhancement is the first realization of the desirable property of receiver-anonymity, essential to privacy settings. It also serves as a conceptually more intuitive and generic understanding of RCCA security, which leads, for example, to new implementations of the notion. Finally, note that (since CCA security is not applicable to the privacy applications motivating our work) the concrete results and the conceptual advancement presented here, seem to substantially expand the power and relevance of the notion of Rand-RCCA-secure encryption.

Identity-Based Encryption for Fair Anonymity Applications: Defining, Implementing, and Applying Rerandomizable RCCA-secure IBE
Our context is anonymous encryption schemes hiding their receiver, but in a setting which allows authorities to reveal the receiver when needed. While anonymous Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) is a natural candidate for such fair anonymity (it gives trusted authority access by design), the {\it de facto} security standard (a.k.a. IND-ID-CCA) is incompatible with the ciphertext rerandomizability which is crucial to anonymous communication. Thus, we seek to extend IND-ID-CCA security for IBE to a notion that can be meaningfully relaxed for rerandomizability while it still protects against active adversaries. To the end, inspired by the notion of replayable adaptive chosen-ciphertext attack (RCCA) security (Canetti {\it et al.}, Crypto'03), we formalize a new security notion called Anonymous Identity-Based RCCA (ANON-ID-RCCA) security for rerandomizable IBE and propose the first construction with rigorous security analysis. The core of our scheme is a novel extension of the double-strand paradigm, which was originally proposed by Golle {\it et al.} (CT-RSA'04) and later extended by Prabhakaran and Rosulek (Crypto'07), to the well-known Gentry-IBE (Eurocrypt'06). Notably, our scheme is the first IBE that simultaneously satisfies adaptive security, rerandomizability, and recipient-anonymity to date. As the application of our new notion, we design a new universal mixnet in the identity-based setting that does not require public key distribution (with fair anonymity). More generally, our new notion is also applicable to most existing rerandomizable RCCA-secure applications to eliminate the need for public key distribution infrastructure while allowing fairness.

A non-interactive deniable authentication scheme based on designated verifier proofs
Bin Wang
A deniable authentication protocol enables a receiver to identify the source of the given messages but unable to prove to a third party the identity of the sender. In recent years, several non-interactive deniable authentication schemes have been proposed in order to enhance efficiency. In this paper, we propose a security model for non-interactive deniable authentication schemes. Then a non-interactive deniable authentication scheme is presented based on designated verifier proofs. Furthermore, we prove the security of our scheme under the DDH assumption.

A new identity based proxy signature scheme
Bin Wang
Proxy signature schemes allow a proxy signer to generate proxy signatures on behalf of an original signer. Mambo et al. first introduced the notion of proxy signature and a lot of research work can be found on this topic nowadays. Recently, many identity based proxy signature schemes were proposed. However, some schemes are vulnerable to proxy key exposure attack. In this paper, we propose a security model for identity based proxy signature schemes. Then an efficient scheme from pairings is presented. The presented scheme is provably secure in the random oracle model. In particular, the new scheme is secure against proxy key exposure attack.

A non-delegatable identity-based strong designated verifier signature scheme
Bin Wang
In a strong designated verifier signature scheme, no third party can verify the validity of a signature. On the other hand, non-delegatability, proposed by Lipmaa, Wang and Bao, is another stronger notion for designated verifier signature schemes. In this paper, we formalize a security model for non-delegatable identity based strong designated verifier signature (IDSDVS) schemes. Then a novel non-delegatable IDSDVS scheme based on pairing is presented. The presented scheme is proved to be non-delegatable, non-transferable and unforgeable under the Gap Bilinear Diffie-Hellman assumption.
