Encrypted search is the area that focuses on the design, cryptanalysis, implementation of protocols and systems that allow search operations on encrypted data. One aspect of the area that is still poorly understood is its leakage. This talk will go over some recent cryptanalytic results as well as leakage suppression -- a new research direction that focuses on designing “low-leakage” schemes.
