To show that only receivers can decrypt ciphertexts, we defined two attack models that either the PKG and the service providing server or the e-mail server collude with an adversary, and proved that the proposed scheme is secure against passive attack in the models.

Ciphertext (data in encrypted form) bears roughly the same resemblance to plaintext (data in its original form) as a hamburger does to a T-bone steak.
Independently of the choice of cipher, confounders are not needed in protocols where all ciphertexts generated are guaranteed to be different.
The cipher has a striking resemblance to the class of Feistel ciphers which include the Data Encryption Standard [3], where the basic building block works on the two halves of the ciphertext block.

And the multicast packets are transmitted with the ciphertext encrypted by AES.
The proposed scheme has the nice arbitration mechanism allowing the designated recipient to convert the authenticated ciphertext into an ordinary signature without any extra computation efforts or communication overheads for the public arbitration.
