Broadcast encryption (BE) is a cryptographic primitive that enables a sender to broadcast a message to a set of receivers in a secure channel. The efficiency of BE is measured by three factors: ciphertext transmission cost, user storage cost, and computational cost for decryption. In general, BE is applied to the environments where a large number of receivers should be accommodated, so that the transmission cost is considered as being the most important factor. In this paper, we suggest a new BE system, using Shamir's secret sharing method, which considerable reduces the transmission cost. In comparison to the previous Subset Difference (SD) system, the transmission size of our BE is longer until , but get shorter when for number of revoked users and n number of total users. We show that the advantage can be achieved at the slight expense of both the storage and computational costs.
