Real Cryptographers Don't Use Obfuscation
In this talk, I will provide a survey of several recent works showing how to use pairing groups to "compile" private-key primitives to public-key ones in the context of
In each of these cases, we obtain simple and improved constructions that rely on standard assumptions in bilinear groups.
Based on joint works with Jie Chen, Romain Gay, Eike Kiltz, Jiaxin Pan (TCC 2014, Eurocrypt 2015 and Crypto 2015). The title of the talk is a quote from Alon Rosen.
