Abstract: Functional encryption is an emerging vision for public-key cryptography offering fine-grained mechanism for computing on encrypted data.  Unfortunately, currently all of the more powerful constructions of functional encryption are built from non-standard assumptions. In this talk, I will present new results on functional encryption from standard cryptographic assumptions.
