Abstract

Broadcast encryption is a novel concept for sending a special message to a subset of users. In broadcast encryption schemes, the distribution center broadcasts the message in encrypted form and expect that only the intended users be able to decrypt the message. This concept has several applications such as pay-per-service TVs. In this paper, we investigate one of the most recent broadcast encryption schemes and show that the introduced scheme does not provide the main requirement of broadcast encryption schemes. For this purpose, we demonstrate that all of the users, including authorized and unauthorized users, can decrypt the broadcasted encrypted message.
