Share Conversion and Private Information Retrieval

Amos Beimel, Yuval Ishai, Eyal Kushilevitz, Ilan Orlov
2012 2012 IEEE 27th Conference on Computational Complexity  
An information-theoretic private information retrieval (PIR) protocol allows a client to retrieve the i-th bit of a database, held by two or more servers, without revealing information about i to any individual  ...  In a nutshell, we use the following two-step approach: (1) apply share conversion to get a low-communication secure multiparty computation protocol P for a nontrivial class F of low-depth circuits; (2)  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT We thank Gadi Aleksandrowicz for helpful discussions and comments.  ...

Small, stupid, and scalable

Alexander Iliev, Sean W. Smith
2010 Proceedings of the fifth ACM workshop on Scalable trusted computing - STC '10  
We then use our own prior work on using trusted third parties for practical Private Information Retrieval to design and prototype tiny trusted third parties (TTTPs) that substantially reduce the overhead  ...  One way is for Agnes to house C in a strong tamper-protected secure coprocessor at Boris's site.  ...  Theoretical computer scientists developed many algorithms (e.g., [11, 10] ) through which users, servers, and sometimes other parties could carry out computation and achieve PIR.  ...

Don't Reveal My Intension: Protecting User Privacy Using Declarative Preferences during Distributed Query Processing [chapter]

Nicholas L. Farnan, Adam J. Lee, Panos K. Chrysanthis, Ting Yu
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we address the specification and enforcement of querier privacy constraints on the execution of distributed database queries.  ...  However, in a decentralized setting, two query plans that produce the same result might actually reveal vastly different information about the intensional description of a user's query to the servers participating  ...  This approach has come to be known as information-theoretic PIR. PIR using only a single server was established using computational techniques in [14] .  ...

Hidden credential retrieval from a reusable password

Xavier Boyen
2009 Proceedings of the 4th International Symposium on Information, Computer, and Communications Security - ASIACCS '09  
Our results have an immediate and practical application for the real world: they show how to implement single-sign-on stateless roaming authentication for the internet, in a ad-hoc user-driven fashion  ...  Although many existing solutions can be employed to protect a long secret using a short password, those solutions typically require certain assumptions on the distribution of the secret and/or the password  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank the anonymous referees of ASIACCS 2009 for valuable comments.  ...

Stanislaw Jarecki, Boyang Wei
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
MPC ORAM enables secure computation of any RAM program on large data held by different entities, e.g. MPC processing of database queries on a secret-shared database.  ...  The shortened version of this paper appears in ACNS'18 proceedings [21] functionality as search and information retrieval.  ...  Because most of our protocols employ information-theoretic tools, for most protocols we do not explicitly show simulator algorithms, but instead we argue that the messages received by each party in the  ...
