In this paper, firstly, we introduce a new security definition called secret key awareness security which is to guarantee anyone generating the public key to know the corresponding secret key. Following, we give a concrete implementing for secret key awareness security. Secondly, we present two applications: one is in plaintext awareness security cryptosystem, and another is in certificatless public key encryption scheme.
