Heuristics Optimization of Boolean Circuits with application in Attribute Based Encryption

Alexandru Ionita, Denis-Andrei Banu, Iulian Oleniuc

We propose a method of optimizing monotone Boolean circuits by re-writing them in a simpler, equivalent form. We use in total six heuristics: Hill Climbing, Simulated Annealing, and variations of them, which operate on the representation of the circuit as a logical formula. Our main motivation is to improve performance in Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) schemes for Boolean circuits. Therefore, we show how our heuristics improve ABE systems for Boolean circuits. Also, we run tests to evaluate the performance of our heuristics, both as a standalone optimization for Boolean circuits and also inside ABE systems.
