In detail, the new primitive allows an intermediate agent to convert Alice's(delegator) ciphertext to Bob's(recipient) ciphertext by using proxy re-encryption key [rk.

The decryption time can be measured as the time that an encryption algorithm takes to produce a plain text from a ciphertext.
Most of the existing CP-ABE scheme uses bilinear maps and generates secret keys and ciphertext of large size.
The cipher will then be XOR-ed with plaintext to produce the ciphertext.
Step 3: Signcrypt: Both users A and B can execute this phase in parallel, where individual user uses their SID, along with other users public key QID and their key contribution k in the derivation of ciphertext and the signature generation.
RSA computations can be mathematically proofed by forward substitution of the encryption process of plaintext message M to get the ciphered message C and then by backward substitution of Ciphertext C to get back the plaintext message M as shown in the figure 2 below.
