# EFFICIENT IBE-PKE PROXY RE-ENCRYPTION

### Takeo Mizuno, Hiroshi Doi

#### Abstract

In proxy re-encryption schemes, a semi-trusted entity called proxy can convert a ciphertext encrypted for Alice into a new ciphertext for Bob without seeing the underlying plaintext. Several proxy re-encryption schemes have been proposed, however, only one scheme which enables the conversion of IBE ciphertexts to PKE ciphertexts has been proposed and it has some drawbacks. In that scheme, the size of the re-encrypted ciphertext increases and Bob must be aware of existence of the proxy, which means Bob cannot decrypt a re-encrypted ciphertext with same PKE decryption algorithm. We propose a new, efficient scheme that enables the conversion of IBE ciphertexts to PKE ciphertexts, and prove CPA security in the standard model. In our scheme, the size of the re-encrypted ciphertext is optimal and Bob does not aware of existence of the proxy. As far as we knows, this is the first IBE-PKE type scheme that holds the above properties.
