Functional encryption (FE), has recently been introduced as a new paradigm of encryption systems to overcome all-or-nothing limitations of classical encryption. In an FE system the decryptor deciphers a function over the message plaintext: such functional decryptability makes it feasible to process encrypted data (e.g. on the Internet) and obtain a partial view of the message plaintext. This extra flexibility over classical encryption is a powerful enabler for many emerging security technologies (i.e. controlled access, searching and computing on encrypted data, program obfuscation).
FENTEC’s mission is to make the functional encryption paradigm ready for wide- range applications, integrating it in ICT technologies as naturally as classical encryption. The primary objective is the efficient and application-oriented development of functional encryption systems.
XLAB will lead the implementation work package and will participate in the project as the main implementer of the selected set of the existing and the new functional encryption schemes designed by the academic partners.
