The Replication-Based Outsourced Computation (RBOC) mechanism allows clients to outsource computing jobs to multiple contractors, with payment for honest contractors based on a majority vote. However, the traditional RBOC system suffers from issues with client privacy leakage, computation burden, and lazy contractors. To address these challenges, we propose a secure RBOC system that uses public-key encryption with equality tests (PKEET) via smart contracts, ensuring stability while protecting data privacy. This system effectively solves the privacy and computation burden problems but remains vulnerable to lazy contractor attacks, the root cause for which is that the existing PKEET schemes suffer from this type of attack. To solve this issue, we introduce PKEET against lazy encryptors (PKEET-LE), which provides security against lazy encryptors who aim to forge ciphertexts for a given ciphertext to pass the equality test between them without knowing the knowledge of the underlying plaintext. We construct a provably secure PKEET-LE scheme and evaluate its performance, demonstrating its practicality in the RBOC system using smart contracts.
