Abstract:

-------------

Lattice-based cryptography offers attractive features like apparent resistance to quantum attacks; good efficiency and parallelism; and versatile cryptographic constructions like identity-based, attribute-based, and fully homomorphic encryption. Unfortunately the definitions of lattice schemes involve advanced mathematics, and many subtleties arise in their implementation. We propose a software platform that provides a safe, efficient, and general framework for lattice cryptography, and special tools to simplify homomorphic encryption.

 

Specifically, we introduce Λ◦λ, a modular library for lattice cryptography based on the functional language Haskell that can be used to build a wide variety of lattice-based cryptographic primitives, including homomorphic encryption. We also present a "homomorphic compiler" that automatically translates the description of lattice schemes into homomorphic versions of those schemes.
