Are there open source implementations of SSE and OPE? Can anyone please point to sample codes, if available.


If cryptDB is not an option, what other options are available?
(Indeed, these schemes are weak — which is why cryptDB proposes onion layers for encryption.)

    $\begingroup$ 1) These kinds of encryption are inherently weak 2) Take a look at CryptDB $\endgroup$ Oct 23 '13 at 11:49
  • $\begingroup$ Understand the design of these schemes and implement them :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I have extracted the OPE code from cryptoDB: github.com/hilder-vitor/ope-from-cryptodb It makes it easier to use this scheme, because we don't need to encrypt the whole cryptoDB. And also, I've made a Makefile and a simple example to make it more friendly. $\endgroup$ Jun 18 '16 at 11:30

cryptdb has these implementations inside it . But their licensing is not Open sources as in GPL etc . They say its available for research purposes !

I have implemented Symmetric Searchable Encryption in Java, its LGPL

  • $\begingroup$ In fact, the LICENSE file that comes with the cryptdb's source code says that the software is under GPL v3. $\endgroup$ May 26 '16 at 13:22
