This book covers a broader scope of Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE), from the background knowledge, to specific constructions, theoretic proofs, and applications. The goal is to provide in-depth knowledge usable for researchers and college students who want to have a comprehensive understanding of ABE schemes, Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC) models, and the most recent research and applications development based on ABE solutions. This book is also ideal for IT companies to provide them with the most recent technologies and research on how to implement data access control models for data-centric applications. It's also of interested to those working in security, to enable them to have the most recent developments in data access control such as ICN and Blockchain technologies.
Foundations. Attribute-Based Encryption. Group-Based Communication. Comparable ABE. Privacy-Preserving ABE. Identity-Based User Revocation. Performance Enhancement in ABE. Attribute Management. Case Study. Conclusion. Appendix: Codes of ABE schemes.
