- There exists a class of functions such that the number of bit-OT tokens required to securely implement them is at least the size of the sender's input. The same applies for receiver's input size (with a different class of functionalities).
- Non-adaptive protocols in the hardware token model imply efficient (decomposable) randomized encodings. This can be interpreted as evidence to the impossibility of non-adaptive protocols for a large class of functions.
- There exists a functionality for which there is no protocol in the stateless hardware token model accessing the tokens at most a constant number of times, even when the adversary is computationally bounded.
En route to proving our results, we make interesting connections between the hardware token model and well studied notions such as OT hybrid model, randomized encodings, and obfuscation.Category / Keywords: foundations / Original Publication (with major differences): IACR-TCC-2014 Date: received 5 Dec 2013, last revised 12 Jan 2014 Contact author: sagrawl2 at illinois edu Available format(s): PDF | BibTeX Citation Version: 20140112:074937 (All versions of this report) Discussion forum: Show discussion | Start new discussion
