Proxy Re-Encryption

Teetje Stark

Proxy Re-Encryption is a new cryptographic primitive that allows a semi-trusted third party (a proxy) to forward end-to-end encrypted messages to a second receiver without gaining access to the underlying plaintext. This talk gives an overview of the different flavours of Proxy Re-Encryption. It further provides an example of how the “most useful” property, unidirectionality, is commonly achieved by looking at one of the schemes.


Next time we meet at SSE (Se­cure Sys­tems En­gi­neer­ing), Mauerstr. 78-80.

The next meetup is a special Berlin Crypto meetup and not at our usual location at Mozilla Berlin.

We're a bunch of security enthusiasts. Mozilla is nice enough to give us the space, but this meetup and its leaders do not speak on behalf of Mozilla.
