It is tricky to determine whether two ciphertexts contain the same message when the messages are encrypted with different public keys. public key encryption with equality test (PKEET) addresses this problem without decryption. By integrating PKEET with identity-based encryption, identity-based encryption with equality test (IBEET) simplifies the certificate management in PKEET. In this paper, we first propose an IBEET scheme that can resist offline message recovery attacks (OMRA) and requires neither the dual-tester setting nor the group mechanism. With the help of some mathematical assumptions, we demonstrate the security of our scheme. Experiment results reveal that our scheme is efficient. From the perspective of usability, we explain why our scheme is more appropriate to be applied in healthcare social Apps than other OMRA-resistant schemes.
