Ciphertext-policy attribute-based proxy re-encryption (CP-ABPRE) extends the traditional Proxy Re-Encryption (PRE) by allowing a semi-trusted proxy to transform a ciphertext under an access policy toanother ciphertext with the same plaintext under a new access policy (i.e., attribute-based re-encryption).The proxy, however, learns nothing about the underlying plaintext. CP-ABPRE has many real world appli-cations, such as fine-grained access control in cloud storage systems and medical records sharing amongdifferent hospitals. All the existing CP-ABPRE schemes are leaving chosen-ciphertext attack (CCA) securityas an interesting open problem. This paper, for the first time, proposes a new CP-ABPRE scheme to tacklethe problem. The new scheme supports attribute-based re-encryption with any monotonic access structures.Despite being constructed in the random oracle model, our scheme can be proven CCA secure under thedecisional q-parallel bilinear Diffie–Hellman exponent assumption.
