Spatial encryption was first proposed by Boneh and Hamburg in 2008. It is one implementation of the generalized identity-based encryption schemes and many systems with a variety of properties can be derived from it. Recently, Hamburg improved the notion by presenting a variant called doubly-spatial encryption. The doubly-spatial encryption is more powerful and expressive. More useful cryptography systems can be build from it, such as attribute-based encryption, etc. However, most presented spatial encryption schemes are proven to be selectively secure. Only a few spatial encryption schemes achieve adaptive security, but not under standard assumptions. And no fully secure doubly-spatial encryption scheme has been presented before.
