Lossy encryption was originally studied as a means of achieving efficient and composable oblivious transfer. Bellare, Hofheinz and Yilek showed that lossy encryption is also selective opening secure. We present new and general constructions of lossy encryption schemes and of cryptosystems secure against selective opening adversaries. We show that every re-randomizable encryption scheme gives rise to efficient encryptions secure against a selective opening adversary. We show that statistically… CONTINUE READING
