Abstract

Predicate Based Encryption (PBE) is a novel family
of public key encryption schemes that allows for expressive,
and fine-grained, access control to be integrated within the
cryptographic process. Providing an efficient means to realise
distributed encrypted access control. Security patterns allow for
security problems and their solutions to be described concretely
and precisely, and be applied directly within the software development
process. Pattern languages provide a means to specify
how a set of interconnected patterns can be used together to solve
a set of related problems. This paper proposes the construction
of a pattern language governing the design and deployment of
PBE crypto-systems. An overview for the proposed language
is given together with a discussion towards issues affecting its
specification.
