We introduce two new schemes for securely computing Ham-ming distance in the two-party setting. Our first scheme is a very efficient protocol, based solely on 1-out-of-2 Oblivious Transfer, that achieves full security in the semi-honest setting and one-sided security in the malicious setting. Moreover we show that this protocol is significantly more(More)
Recently, Dziembowski et al. introduced the notion of non-malleable codes (NMC), inspired from the notion of non-malleability in cryptography and the work of Gennaro et al. in 2004 on tamper proof security. Informally, when using NMC, if an attacker modifies a codeword, decoding this modified codeword will return either the original message or a completely(More)
At WAHC'13, Bringer et al. introduced a protocol called SHADE for secure and efficient Hamming distance computation using oblivious transfer only. In this paper, we introduce a generalization of the SHADE protocol, called GSHADE, that enables privacy-preserving computation of several distance metrics, including (normalized) Hamming distance, Euclidean(More)
Verifier-Local Revocation (VLR) group signatures, introduced by Boneh and Shacham in 2004 are a particular case of dynamic group signature schemes where the revocation process does not influence the activity of the signers. The verifiers use a Revocation List to check if the signers are revoked. In all known schemes, checking a signature requires a(More)
The notion of domain-specific pseudonymous signatures (DSPS) has recently been introduced for private authentication of ID documents, like passports, that embed a chip with computational abilities. Thanks to this privacy-friendly primitive, the document authenticates to a service provider through a reader and the resulting signatures are anonymous, linkable(More)
