Threshold public-key encryption is a cryptographic primitive allowing decryption control in group-oriented encryption applications. Existing TPKE schemes suffer from long ciphertexts with size linear in the number of authorized users or can only achieve non-adaptive security, which is too weak to capture the capacity of the attackers in the real world. In this paper, the authors propose an efficient TPKE scheme with constant-size ciphertexts and adaptive security. Security is proven under the decision bilinear exponentiation assumption in the standard model.
