We construct public-key cryptosystems that are secure assuming the

\emph{worst-case} hardness of approximating the length of a shortest

nonzero vector in an $n$-dimensional lattice to within a small

$\poly(n)$ factor. Prior cryptosystems with worst-case connections

were based either on the shortest vector problem for a \emph{special

class} of lattices ...

In the {\em learning parities with noise} problem ---well-studied in learning theory and cryptography--- we

have access to an oracle that, each time we press a button,

returns a random vector $ a \in \GF(2)^n$ together with a bit $b \in \GF(2)$ that was computed as

$a\cdot u +\eta$, where ...

We present a fully homomorphic encryption scheme that is based solely on the (standard) learning with errors (LWE) assumption. Applying known results on LWE, the security of our scheme is based on the worst-case hardness of ``short vector problems'' on arbitrary lattices.

Our construction improves on previous works in two ... more >>>

This survey, aimed mainly at mathematicians rather than practitioners, covers recent developments in homomorphic encryption (computing on encrypted data) and program obfuscation (generating encrypted but functional programs). Current schemes for encrypted computation all use essentially the same "noisy" approach: they encrypt via a noisy encoding of the message, they decrypt ... more >>>

In this paper we study the quantum learnability of constant-depth classical circuits under the uniform distribution and in the distribution-independent framework of PAC learning. In order to attain our results, we establish connections between quantum learning and quantum-secure cryptosystems. We then achieve the following results.

1) Hardness of learning ... more >>>

We introduce a continuous analogue of the Learning with Errors (LWE) problem, which we name CLWE. We give a polynomial-time quantum reduction from worst-case lattice problems to CLWE, showing that CLWE enjoys similar hardness guarantees to those of LWE. Alternatively, our result can also be seen as opening new avenues ... more >>>

We show polynomial-time quantum algorithms for the following problems:

(*) Short integer solution (SIS) problem under the infinity norm, where the public matrix is very wide, the modulus is a polynomially large prime, and the bound of infinity norm is set to be half of the modulus minus a ...
