PEKS

This is the implementation of public-key searchable encryption using bilinear maps described in Public Key Encryption with Keyword Search. It is a simple, command-line application developed in C.

Implementation Details

Dependencies

  • GMP Library:

    $ sudo apt-get install libgmp3-dev

  • OpenSSL:

    $ sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

  • PBC Library

    $ ./configure --prefix=$HOME/.local
    $ make
    $ make install
    

    Makefile uses this path. In case of change in destination directory, update the Makefile accordingly.

Build

$ make

Run

$ ./peks <word1> <word2>

Public Key Encryption with Keyword Search

by Dan Boneh, Giovanni Di Crescenzo, Rafail Ostrovsky and Giuseppe Persiano.

The authors describe a way of appending information to a message that has been encrypted with a standard public key cipher, which allows a server that doesn’t have the private key necessary to decrypt the entire message to still be able to search for a certain set of keywords. For a keyword, a PEKS value can be generated which will allow the server to perform a search using a trapdoor.
