Next Meetup Scheduled: Single-server private information retrieval using homomorphic encryption
on February 24th, 6pm Paris time
Hello fellow cryptographers!
Our next Meetup is scheduled for Thursday, February 24th at 6pm Paris time. Here is the link to register:
In this talk, Haris will talk about private information retrieval (PIR) protocols based on Somewhat/Fully Homomorphic Encryption (SHE/FHE).
PIR allows the client to privately retrieve a record from a database hosted at the server. He will first discuss a general framework of PIR protocols.
Followed by optimizations to improve the request size, computation time, and response overhead including the results from ACM CCS’21.
About the speaker
Muhammad Haris is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, advised by Ling Ren.
His research interests are in applied cryptography and computer security.
Recently he has been working on improving the concrete efficiency of crypto primitives like private information retrieval, private set intersection, Oram and oblivious transfer.

See you then,
PS: We're always looking for people to present their work on all aspects of homomorphic encryption during our monthly Meetup! So feel free to let us know - The easiest way to contact us is on Twitter or Discord.
