More improvements on key length in homomorphic encryption

Paper by Chaoju Hu and Jianwei Zhao


The public key of the integer homomorphic encryption scheme which was proposed by Van Dijk et al. is long, so the scheme is almost impossible to use in practice. By studying the scheme and Coron’s public key compression technique, a scheme which is able to encrypt n bits plaintext once was obtained. The scheme improved the efficiency of the decrypting party and increased the number of encrypting parties, so it meets the needs of cloud computing better. The security of the scheme is based on the approximate GCD problem and the sparse-subset sum problem.
