Proxy re-encryption is a cryptographic primitive developed to
delegate the decryption right from one party (the delegator) to
another (the delegatee). In a proxy re-encryption scheme, the
delegator assigns a key to a proxy to re-encrypt all messages
encrypted with his public key such that the re-encrypted ciphertexts
can be decrypted with the delegatee's private key. We propose a
type-and-identity-based proxy re-encryption scheme based on the
Boneh-Franklin Identity Based Encryption (IBE) scheme. In our
scheme, the delegator can categorize messages into different types
and delegate the decryption right of each type to the delegatee
through a proxy. Our scheme enables the delegator to provide the
proxy fine-grained re-encryption capability. As an application, we
propose a fine-grained Personal Health Record (PHR) disclosure
scheme for healthcare service by applying the proposed scheme.
