Using Functional Encryption for Privacy Enabling Personalisation

Thesis type
  • Bachelor
  • Master
Status Open

Functional encryption is an emerging approach for encrypting data in a way which allows executing an a priori specified function on the encrypted data. While FHE/SMPC allows general functions to be executed, for functional encryption, one function needs to be specified beforehand, and only that function can be executed on the encrypted data. Can this be used as part of a personalisation process?

The main task of this thesis is to investigate the practical limits of functional encryption, by developing a personalisation approach on top of at least one functional encryption approach, and evaluating it in comparison to standard implementations.


good knowledge of Java and/or C++, some knowledge of cryptography, willingness to engage with an active research topic.
