Open, privacy-preserving protocols for lawful surveillance [article]

Aaron Segal, Joan Feigenbaum, Bryan Ford
2016 arXiv   pre-print
In particular, we present practical, privacy-preserving protocols for two operations that law-enforcement and intelligence agencies have used effectively: set intersection and contact chaining.  ...  Experiments with our protocols suggest that privacy-preserving contact chaining can perform a 3-hop privacy-preserving graph traversal producing 27,000 ciphertexts in under two minutes.  ...  Bandits [15] formulated the openness principle that we have followed and were the first to design privacy-preserving protocols for the surveillance of unknown targets. Kearns et al.  ...

Catching Bandits and Only Bandits: Privacy-Preserving Intersection Warrants for Lawful Surveillance

Aaron Segal, Bryan Ford, Joan Feigenbaum
2014 USENIX Security Symposium  
We formulate principles that we believe effective, lawful surveillance protocols should adhere to in an era of big data and global communication networks.  ...  Preliminary experiments indicate that such a system could be efficient and usable, suggesting that privacy and accountability need not be barriers to effective intelligence gathering.  ...  The U.S. government is authorized to reproduce and distribute reprints for Governmental purposes notwithstanding any copyright notation thereon.  ...
