An obfuscator is a compiler that transforms any program (which we will view in this work as a boolean circuit) into an obfuscated program (also a circuit) that has the same input-output functionality as the original program, but is “unintelligible”. Obfuscation has applications for cryptography and for software protection. Barak et al. (CRYPTO 2001, pp. 1–18, 2001) initiated a theoretical study of obfuscation, which focused on black-box obfuscation, where the obfuscated circuit should leak no… CONTINUE READING
