**Title: **On Bilinear Groups of Composite Order

**Author(s): ***Ciprian Baetu* *Petru Cehan* *Dan Marculet*

**Abstract: **The paper under consideration is aimed at developing new results about bilinear groups of composite order, including relationships on hard problems and the existence of self-bilinear maps on such groups.

**Keywords: **bilinear map, bilinear group, hard problem.
