A survey on Functional Encryption

Carla Mascia, Massimiliano Sala, Irene Villa

Functional Encryption (FE) expands traditional public-key encryption in two different ways: it supports fine-grained access control and it allows to learn a function of the encrypted data. In this paper, we review all FE classes, describing their functionalities and main characteristics. In particular, for each class we mention several schemes, providing their security assumptions and comparing their properties. To our knowledge, this is the first survey that encompasses the entire FE family.
