I've been reading up on bilinear maps and their application to cryptography and one thing I keep seeing hasn't yet clicked. If $e:G_1\times G_2\to G_n$ is a bilinear map, $G_1,G_2,G_n$ are always ...
I'm trying to choose a group that is hard under the Chosen-Target Computational Diffie-Hellman assumption, according to the definition in this paper, in order to implement the oblivious transfer ...
This answer makes the claim that the Discrete Log problem and RSA are independent from a security perspective. RSA labs makes a similar statement: The discrete logarithm problem bears the same ...
I understand my group theory (allegedly), so I can make partial sense of The Hidden Subgroup problem: Given a group $G$, a subgroup $H \leq G$, and a set $X$, we say a function $f : G \Rightarrow ...
