Attribute-Sets: A Practically Motivated Enhancement to Attribute-Based Encryption

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In distributed systems users need to share sensitive objects with others based on the recipients' ability to satisfy a policy. Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) is a new paradigm where such policies are specified and cryptographically enforced in the encryption algorithm itself. Ciphertext-Policy ABE (CP-ABE) is a form of ABE where policies are associated with encrypted data and attributes are associated with keys. In this paper the authors focus on improving the flexibility of representing user attributes in keys.
