Obscure meaning, cryptic messages: cryptography and the law

Author: Danaja FABČIČ POVŠE (KU Leuven)

Cryptography may look like the art of transforming text into unintelligible gibberish, but in a digital society it is absolutely necessary. In very simple terms, cryptography, through the technique called encryption, prevents unauthorised third parties from seeing the original text or information. Instead, they can only access a seemingly random sequence of numbers and letters.

Functional Encription Library

Functional Encryption Library

25/Apr/2019

FENTEC project provided the first fully-fledged functional encryption library. By fully-fledged we mean a library where the user can choose via an easy-to-use API between different schemes and each scheme can be instantiated from different cryptographic primitives.

FENTEC library actually comes in two flavors: GoFE is written in Go, while CiFEr is written in C.
