Attribute-Based Functional Encryption on Lattices

Xavier Boyen

Abstract: We introduce a broad lattice manipulation technique for expressive cryptography, and use it to realize functional encryption for access structures from post-quantum hardness assumptions.

Specifically, we build an efficient key-policy attribute-based encryption scheme, and prove its security in the selective sense from learning-with-errors intractability in the standard model.

Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / Expressive cryptography, functional encryption, ABE, LWE, lattices.
