Attribute-based Encryption of Personal Health Record in Cloud Computing Environment: A Short Review presented at CNSA 2020

by Yuping Yan, Mohammed Ligeti,

Summary : Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) scheme as a new cryptography primitive, shows its advantages in fine-grained access control mechanism and one-to-many exible encryption mode. By conducting an in-depth study, we demonstrate the development trace, major work and research status of ABE. This paper mainly introduces the basic concepts of ABE, analyzes the research problems, namely key abuse, revocation, multi-authorities, and its applications on real use cases especially in personal health record in cloud computing environment.
