Using Identity-Based Public-Key Cryptography with Images to Preserve Privacy (extended Abstract)

Abstract

We propose a public-key signature and encryption application which strongly relies on identity-based public-key cryptography. By alternately using identity information and pictures of the involved parties as public keys we preserve all advantages gained by identity-based public-key schemes, mainly including the absence of a public-key infrastructure. On the other hand, all parties obtain only obvious and necessary information about other involved parties.
