      Identity-Based Encryption from the Diffie-Hellman Assumption

*Seminar Series:* Theory of Computation (TOC) 2017

*Speaker:* Sanjam Garg

*Host:* Vinod Vaikuntanathan

*Host Affiliation:* MIT

*Date:* Tuesday, September 19, 2017

*Time:* 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM

*Refreshments Time:* 3:45 PM

*Location:* 32-G449

Abstract: In this talk, I will describe a new construction of 
identity-based encryption based on the hardness of the (Computational) 
Diffie-Hellman Problem (without using groups with pairings). This 
construction achieves the standard notion of identity-based encryption 
as considered by Boneh and Franklin [CRYPTO 2001]. The presented 
construction bypasses known impossibility results using garbled circuits 
that make a non-black-box use of the underlying cryptographic primitives.

(Based on joint work with Nico Döttling)
