Summary: In [Lect. Notes Comput. Sci. 196, 47--53 (1985; Zbl 1359.94626)], \textit{A. Shamir} proposed the concept of the identity-based cryptosystem. Instead of generating and publishing a public key for each user, the identity-based scheme permits each user to choose his name or network address as his public key. This is advantageous to public-key cryptosystems because the public-key verification is so easy and direct. This paper proposes a new identity-based cryptographic scheme for implementing public-key cryptosystem under the security assumptions of integer factorization problem (IFP) and discrete logarithm problem (DLP). The major advantage of the identity-based cryptosystem based on our scheme over other published identity-based cryptosystems is that the number of users can be extended to \(a*L\) users without degrading the system's security even when users cospire, where \(L\) is the number of the system's secrets and \(a\) is the number of factors in \(N-1\).
