1363.3-2013/Cor 1 - Standard for Identity-Based Cryptographic Techniques Using Pairings - Corrigendum 1: Corrections to Citations

The proliferation of electronic communication and the Internet brings with it the need for privacy and data protection. Public-key cryptography offers fundamental technology addressing this need. Many alternative public-key techniques have been proposed, each with its own benefits. IEEE Std 1363TM-20001 and IEEE Std 1363a(TM)-2004 have produced a comprehensive reference defining a range of common public-key techniques covering key agreement, public-key encryption, and digital signatures from several families, namely the discrete logarithm, integer factorization, and elliptic curve families. This document will specify identity-based cryptographic techniques based on pairings. These offer advantages over classic public-key techniques specified in IEEE Std 1363-2000. Examples are the lack of a requirement to exchange or look up public keys of a recipient and the simplified use of short-lived keys. The class of computer and communications systems is not restricted.
