Toward Efficient Certificateless Signcryption from (and without) Bilinear Pairings

In this paper we describe how to construct an efficient certificateless signcryption scheme. Contrary to the usual paradigm of converting identity- based encryption and signature schemes into a combined certificateless protocol, we adopt the approach of extending a conventional signcryption method with a certificateless key validation mechanism, resorting to the underlying identity-based techniques, and as a consequence to pairings, exclusively to val- idate the associated public keys. The result is as efficient as the underlying signcryption method as long as the amortized cost of this validation is low, as is the case of our concrete proposal.
