Abstract: With the rapid development of cloud storage and the increasing awareness of privacy, more and more private data are encrypted before outsourcing to the cloud. Thus, how to search in encrypted data has been a new research item in the scope of searchable encryption. One of the solutions is public key encryption with equality test (PKEET). It can check whether the plaintexts of two ciphertexts encrypted under different public keys are the same, without leakage any information about the plaintexts. Recently, many public key encryption schemes with equality test have been proposed. However, in these schemes, there were only one server be used to perform the equality test, which means that they could not withstand the inner keywords guessing attack. To solve this problem, we propose the first dual server identity-based encryption scheme with equality test (DS-IBEET). And we prove the security under random oracle model. In addition, performance evaluation shows that our scheme is suitable for resource-limited mobile devices.
