Cryptanalysis of the MORE symmetric key fully homomorphic encryption scheme

Boaz Tsaban and Noam Lifshitz

Abstract: The fully homomorphic symmetric encryption scheme \emph{MORE} encrypts keys by conjugation with a random invertible matrix over an RSA modulus. We provide a two known-ciphertexts cryptanalysis recovering a linear dependence among the two encrypted keys.

Category / Keywords: secret-key cryptography / symmetric fully homomorphic encryption
