Is the error distribution in Learning with Errors (LWE), the discrete Gaussian distribution?

In $\mathbb{Z}$, the discrete Gaussian distribution is defined as $D_{Z,s}(x) = \frac{\rho_s(x)}{\rho_s(\mathbb{Z})}, x\in \mathbb{Z}$. In LWE, $(\overrightarrow{a}, b = \langle \overrightarrow{a}, \...

Is the discretization of the Guassian distribution on torus still a discrete Gaussian distribution?

Let $\rho_s(x) = e^{-\pi x^2/s^2}$ be the Gaussian measures, then the discrete Gaussian distribution on $\mathbb{Z}$ could be defined as $D_{\mathbb{Z},s}(x) = \rho_s(x)/\sum_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}\rho_s(n)...

How small can the error be in LWE?

For modulus $Q$ and stddev $\sigma$, [GHS12] suggests that, to achieve 128-bit security, just choose the dimension $N$: $$ N\geq(Q/\sigma)\cdot 33.1 $$ This seems to suggest flexibility to choose ...

Differential privacy guarantees of Gaussian noise, when each coordinate has different sensitivity

Suppose you have a function $f$ that takes a dataset $D$ as input and returns an output in $\mathbb{R}^d$. If this function has $L^2$-sensitivity $\Delta$, then the analytical Gaussian mechanism (...

Standard deviation of gaussian noise in FHEW scheme

I've got two questions regarding the paper FHEW: Bootstrapping Homomorphic Encryption in less than a second. First, the final error of a ciphertext after the refresh procedure is stated as following ...
