Verifiable random functions with Boolean function constraints

Qianwen Wang, Rongquan Feng, Yan Zhu
2018 Science China Information Sciences  
The responsibility for scientific accuracy and content remains entirely with the authors.  ...  Dear editor, Verifiable random functions (VRFs) [1] are cryptographic functions that behaves like a random function for producing a random string y for any variant x, but also allows for efficient verification  ...  As a general example of CVRF, we present a practical construction, called a conditionally verifiable random function on Boolean function (CVRF-BF), to explore the common structure and method of CVRFs.  ...

2004 SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics  
Constraint satisfaction programs where each constraint depends on a constant number of variables have the following property: The randomized algorithm that guesses an assignment uniformly at random satisfies  ...  We combine ideas from these two constructions and prove that there exists a large class of predicates on finite non-Boolean domains such that for predicates in the class, the naive randomized algorithm  ...  There also exists some predicates-such as linear equations mod p with two unknowns in every equation [1] , constraints on exactly two Boolean variables [9] , and a large class of so called regular constraints  ...

The SAT–UNSAT transition for random constraint satisfaction problems

Nadia Creignou, Hervé Daudé
2009 Discrete Mathematics  
We study threshold phenomena for a large class of random constraint satisfaction problems over finite domains.  ...  Our main contribution is a complete classification of the nature (sharp or coarse) of the SAT-UNSAT transition for random Boolean CSPs, which is based on easily decidable properties.  ...  Most of the works concern the satisfiability threshold effect associated with random formulas with special types of allowed constraints.  ...

Accuracy-Privacy Tradeoffs for Two-Party Differentially Private Protocols [chapter]

Vipul Goyal, Ilya Mironov, Omkant Pandey, Amit Sahai
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our work obtains general upper bounds on accuracy for differentially private two-party protocols computing any Boolean function.  ...  At the heart of our results is a new general geometric technique for obtaining non-trivial accuracy bounds for any Boolean functionality.  ...  The accuracy of a randomized Boolean mechanism M : {0, 1} n → {0, 1} with respect to a Boolean function f : {0, 1} n → {0, 1} Stronger notions of privacy are also interesting: for example, where symbols  ...

Expected number of locally maximal solutions for random Boolean CSPs

Nadia Creignou, Hervé Daudé, Olivier Dubois
2007 Discrete Mathematics & Theoretical Computer Science  
International audience For a large number of random Boolean constraint satisfaction problems, such as random $k$-SAT, we study how the number of locally maximal solutions evolves when constraints are added  ...  We give the exponential order of the expected number of these distinguished solutions and prove it depends on the sensitivity of the allowed constraint functions only.  ...  Let L and n be integers, CSP n,L (F) is a random model for the Boolean constraint satisfaction problem with n variables and L constraints.  ...

Nicolas Broutin, Cécile Mailler
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We prove that, under rather weak local conditions on the sequence of random trees (t_n)_n> 1, the distribution induced on Boolean functions by this procedure converges as n tends to infinity.  ...  In this latter case, we provide a relationship between the probability of a given Boolean function and its complexity.  ...  studied uniformly random k-variable Boolean functions (for large integer k).  ...

Heinz Riener and Rüdiger Ehlers and Bruno Schmitt and Giovanni De Micheli
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The approach can deal with incompletely-specified Boolean functions defined over many Boolean variables and is particularly fast if the Boolean function can be expressed with only a few product terms.  ...  Our approach finds one or more ESOP forms for a given Boolean function.  ...  For k = 9 terms, the constraint system becomes for the first time satisfiable and the corresponding ESOP form with 9 terms is returned.

Improving design verifiability by early RTL coverability analysis

Kai-Hui Chang, Chia-Wei Chang, Jie-Hong Roland Jiang, Chien-Nan Jimmy Liu
2012 Tenth ACM/IEEE International Conference on Formal Methods and Models for Codesign (MEMCODE2012)  
By identifying coverability problems at early RTL design stages, design verifiability can be improved, thus reducing the effort required at the verification phase.  ...  For each sample, 25 random XOR constraints were added.  ...  Each condition is a symbolic trace that is essentially a single-output Boolean function. When the output of the function is 1, the target can be covered.  ...

Probabilistically Checkable Proofs and Codes

Irit Dinur
2011 Proceedings of the International Congress of Mathematicians 2010 (ICM 2010)  
Thus such proofs can be verified by a randomized procedure that is local: it reads only a constant (!) number of bits from the proof and with high probability detects an error if one exists.  ...  The canonical example is the sat problem: given a Boolean formula, it is notoriously difficult to come up with a satisfying assignment, whereas given a proposed assignment it is trivial to plug in the  ...  . • The "majority is stablest" theorem is concerned with the noise sensitivity of Boolean functions.  ...
