comment Operation which needs much computing power to be created, but just a little to be solved?
The "just a little to be solved" part is easy: declare that 0 is always a solution. $\;$

comment Format Preserving Encryption for 32 or 64 bit plaintext values
I would recommend using HMAC, since it is presumably a secure PRF. $\:$ I have no idea what the impact on performance would be. $\;\;\;\;$

comment Can we run a probabilistic function on ciphertext with Functional Encryption (or Attribute Based Encryption)?
@TravisMayberry : $\:$ That depends on what the PRF takes as input. $\;\;\;\;$

comment Can we run a probabilistic function on ciphertext with Functional Encryption (or Attribute Based Encryption)?
@JianLiu : $\;\;\;$ If $sk_f$ can be quantum, then it might be possible "to prevent Bob from providing the same randomness to $\hspace{.04 in}f$" every time. $\:$ There are non-deterministic PRNGs, but that would just move the problem to preventing "Bob from providing the same" entropy to the PRNG every time. $\:$ Do invoker-randomizable PRFs count as "non-deterministic"? $\;\;\;\;\;\;\;$

You could instead "contain within $f$ a" PRF, so that Bob can only provide "the same randomness to $f$" on each call with the same input.

No; I'm just making sure you're aware that EUF-CMA is not the strongest notion. $\;$

That only affects how easy/hard it will be to do format-preserving encryption $\hspace{1.74 in}$ on the space of 160-character strings. $\;$

You should not be encrypting "with the private key". $\:$ See this question and this answer. $\;\;\;\;$
