An Implementation of Incremental Distributed Point Functions in C++ Build status

This library contains an implementation of incremental distributed point functions, based on the following paper:

Boneh, D., Boyle, E., Corrigan-Gibbs, H., Gilboa, N., & Ishai, Y. (2020). Lightweight Techniques for Private Heavy Hitters. arXiv preprint arXiv:2012.14884.

About Incremental Distributed Point Functions

A distributed point function (DPF) is parameterized by an index alpha and a value beta. It consists of two algorithms: key generation and evaluation. The key generation procedure produces two keys k_a and k_b, given alpha and beta. Evaluating each key on any point x in the DPF domain results in an additive secret share of beta, if x == alpha, and a share of 0 otherwise.

Incremental DPFs additionally can be evaluated on prefixes of the index domain. More precisely, an incremental DPF is parameterized by a hierarchy of index domains, each a power of two larger than the previous. Key generation now takes a vector beta, one value beta[i] for each hierarchy level. When evaluated on a b-bit prefix of alpha, where b is the log domain size of the i-th hierarchy level, the incremental DPF returns a secret share of beta[i], otherwise a share of 0.

For more details, see the above paper, as well as the DistributedPointFunction class documentation.
