On-the-fly multiparty computation on the cloud via multikey fully homomorphic encryption

Adriana López-Alt, Eran Tromer, Vinod Vaikuntanathan
2012 Proceedings of the 44th symposium on Theory of Computing - STOC '12  
This extends the standard notion of fully homomorphic encryption (FHE), where users can only enlist the cloud's help in evaluating functions on their own encrypted data.  ...  In on-the-fly MPC, each user is involved only when initially uploading his (encrypted) data to the cloud, and in a final output decryption phase when outputs are revealed; the complexity of both is independent  ...  Adding Zero-Knowledge Proofs.  ...

Using Fully Homomorphic Hybrid Encryption to Minimize Non-interative Zero-Knowledge Proofs

Craig Gentry, Jens Groth, Yuval Ishai, Chris Peikert, Amit Sahai, Adam Smith
2014 Journal of Cryptology  
The technique can also be applied outside the realm of non-interactive zero-knowledge proofs, for instance to get witness-size interactive zero-knowledge proofs in the plain model without any setup or  ...  We apply this technique to both standard non-interactive zero-knowledge proofs and to universally composable non-interactive zero-knowledge proofs.  ...  Computational zero-knowledge follows from the computational zero-knowledge of (K F , P F , V F ), the pseudorandomness of G and the IND-CPA security of (K FHE , E, D, Eval).  ...

After the trials of remote internet voting for local elections in 2011 and parliamentary elections in 2013, a number of local referendums has renewed interest in internet voting in Norway.  ...  While fully homomorphic cryptosystems are not efficient enough for the the system we sketch to be implemented and run today, we expect future improvements in fully homomorphic encryption which may eventually  ...  The main primitive we need is an efficient zero knowledge proof or argument for correct decryption.  ...

Sanitization of FHE Ciphertexts [chapter]

Léo Ducas, Damien Stehlé
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
By definition, fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) schemes support homomorphic decryption, and all known FHE constructions are bootstrapped from a Somewhat Homomorphic Encryption (SHE) scheme via this technique  ...  Additionally, when a public key is provided, ciphertexts are also re-randomizable, e.g., by adding to them fresh encryptions of 0.  ...  This strategy may effectively reduce interactivity in secure multi-party computation (MPC) protocols based on FHE, and offer amortization of an initial zero-knowledge proof on the public key.  ...
