Cover Quote: September 2013

This paper proposes an encryption scheme that possesses the following property: Whatever is efficiently computable about the cleartext given the cyphertext, is also efficiently computable without the cyphertext. The security of our encryption scheme is based on complexity theory. Thus, when we say that it is “impossible” for an adversary to compute any information about the cleartext from the cyphertext we mean that it is not computationally feasible.
