This paper proposes a variant of the ElGamal public key encryption which is secure against chosen ciphertext attack. Our proof of security is based on the intractability of the Gap Hashed Diffie-Hellman assumption in the standard model. The proposed scheme is practical to send encrypted short messages such as credit card information, PIN code, password etc. This scheme also preserves the computational performance of the hash ElGamal encryption scheme (i.e. its simplistic algebraic construction, less exponentiation cost).
