Identity Based Cryptography (IBC) was introduced into Peer-To-Peer (P2P) networks. In this paper, the authors propose a secure key issuing scheme for P2P networks using IBC. They are present an IBC infrastructure, which consists of setup phase, a peer registration solution using Shamir's (k and n) secret sharing scheme, and a secure key issuing scheme, which adopts Key Generate Center (KGC) and Key Privacy Authorities (KPAs) to issue private keys to peers or nodes securely, in order to enable the IBC systems to be more acceptable and applicable in real-world P2P network.
