Blackbox Constructions from Mix-Nets

Douglas Wikström

Abstract

Mix-nets constructed from homomorphic cryptosystems can be generalized to process lists of ciphertexts as units and use different public keys for different parts of such lists. We present a number of blackbox constructions that enriches the set of operations provided by such mix-nets. The constructions are simple, fully practical, and eliminates the need for some specialized protocols.

Note: We welcome references to implementations which already uses variations of the constructions we describe.
