Pairing-friendly curves and elliptic curves with a trapdoor for the discrete logarithm problem are versatile tools in the design of cryptographic protocols. We show that curves having both properties simultaneously enable a non-interactive protocol for identitybased 3-party key distribution and deterministic identity-based signing with “short” signatures. All our protocols are in the random oracle model.
