A range test secure in the active adversary model

Peng, Kun & Dawson, Edward P. (2007) A range test secure in the active adversary model. In Brankovic, L. & Steketee, C. (Eds.) Fifth Australasian Information Security Workshop (Privacy Enhancing Technologies) (AISW 2007), 30 January - 2 February 2007, Ballarat, Victoria.


In ACISP 2006, Peng et al proposed a novel range test technique, which tests whether the integer encrypted in a ciphertext is in an interval range. Their solution is more efficient than any previous solution to range test. However, their technique only works in the passive adversary model, so cannot be widely applied. In this paper, the range test by Peng et al is optimised to be secure in the active adversary model. Although the new range test protocol is less efficient than the original scheme by Peng et al, it is still an efficient solution and can be employed in a much wider application area.

5 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
