National Collaborations within Academics

  • ANR JCJC ROMAnTIC: Randomness in Mathematical Cryptography.

    Participants : Thierry Mefenza, David Pointcheval, Sylvain Ruhault, Adrian Thillard, Damien Vergnaud.

    From October 2012 to September 2016.

    Partners: ANSSI, Univ. Paris 7, Univ. Paris 8.

    The goal of this project is to get a better understanding of the interplay between randomness and cryptography and to study the security of various cryptographic protocols at different levels (information-theoretic and computational security, number-theoretic assumptions, design and provable security of new and existing constructions).

  • ANR JCJC CLE: Cryptography from Learning with Errors.

    Participants : Vadim Lyubashevsky, Pierrick Méaux, Thomas Prest.

    From October 2013 to September 2017.

    Partners: UVSQ, Univ. Paris 8, Inria/SECRET.

    The main objective of this project is to explore the potential practical implications of the Learning with Errors problem and its variants. The plan is to focus on the constructions of essential primitives whose use is prevalent in the real world. Toward the end of the project, the hope is to propose and standardize several public key and symmetric key schemes that have specific advantages over ones that are currently deployed.

  • ANR JCJC EnBiD: Encryption for Big Data.

    Participant : Hoeteck Wee.

    From October 2014 to September 2018.

    Partners: Univ. Paris 2, Univ. Paris 8.

    The main objective of this project is to study techniques for efficient and expressive functional encryption schemes. Functional encryption is a novel paradigm for public-key encryption that enables both fine-grained access control and selective computation on encrypted data, as is necessary to protect big, complex data in the cloud.
