This work continues the search for viable intractability assumptions over infinite groups. In particular, we study the possibility of phrasing random self-reducibility properties for infinite groups in an analogous manner to the case of finite groups with the uniform distribution. As a first step, it is natural to look for distributions which are translation-invariant, i.e., the probability of an event and its translate by a group element are the same (as is the case for the uniform…

Discrete Gaussian Leftover Hash Lemma over Infinite Domains

TLDR
This work proves a "lattice world" analog of LHL over infinite domains, proving that certain "generalized subset sum" distributions are statistically close to well behaved discrete Gaussian distributions, even without any modular reduction.

An Efficient and Parallel Gaussian Sampler for Lattices

TLDR
To the knowledge, this is the first algorithm and rigorous analysis demonstrating the security of a perturbation-like technique and a new Gaussian sampling algorithm for lattices that is efficient and highly parallelizable.

The authors show that sets complete for the classes PP and MOD/sub m/P are random-self-reducible, unless the hierarchy collapses at the third level.

Length-Based Attacks for Certain Group Based Encryption Rewriting Systems

TLDR
A probabilistic attack on public key cryptosystems based on the word/conjugacy problems for finitely presented groups of the type proposed recently by Anshel, Anshel and Goldfeld is described.

TLDR
A (classical) public-key cryptosystem whose security is based on the hardness of the learning problem, which is a reduction from worst-case lattice problems such as GapSVP and SIVP to a certain learning problem that is quantum.

Random Walks On Finite Groups With Few Random Generators

Let $G$ be a finite group. Choose a set $S$ of size $k$ uniformly from $G$ and consider a lazy random walk on the corresponding Cayley graph. We show that for almost all choices of $S$ given $k =

Right-Invariance: A Property for Probabilistic Analysis of Cryptography Based on Infinite Groups

TLDR
This paper pays attention to a property, the so-called right-invariance, which makes finite groups so convenient in cryptography, and gives a mathematical framework for correct, appropriate use of it in infinite groups.
