Applications of Pairing Based Cryptography: Identity Based Encryption and Beyond

This workshop explores innovative and practical applications of pairing-based cryptography. Pairings have been used to create identity-based encryption schemes, but are also a useful tool for solving other cryptographic problems. We hope to encourage the development of new security applications and communication between researchers, developers and users.
