Jevil's Encryption Systems
Imagine if, given a puzzle, you could encrypt a plaintext to the solution of the puzzle without knowing the solution yourself! The Jevil family of encryption systems is a novel set of real-world encryption systems based on the promising foundation of witness encryption. The first Jevil encryption systems comprise of Pentomino, Sudoku and Nonogram-based encryption, allowing for the encryption of plaintext such that solving a Pentomino, Sudoku or Nonogram puzzle yields to decryption. Jevil encryption systems are shown to be correct, secure and to achieve high performance with modest overhead.
