Security is one of the extensive and complicated requirements that need to be provided in order to achieve few issues like confidentiality, integrity and authentication. In a content-based publish/subscribe system, authentication is difficult to achieve since there exists no strong bonding between the end parties. Similarly, Integrity and confidentiality needs arise in published events and subscription conflicts with content-based routing. The basic tool to support confidentiality, integrity is encryption. In this paper for providing security mechanism in broker-less content-based publish/subscribe system we adapt pairing-based cryptography mechanism. In this mechanism, we use Identity Based Encryption (IBE) technique to achieve the needs of publish/subscribe system. This approach helps in providing fine-grained key management, effective encryption, decryption operations and routing is carried out in the order of subscribed attributes.
