Eve also knows nothing about their outputs since all computations are private.
On the Problem of Local Randomness in Privacy Amplification with an Active Adversary
Thus Bob has obtained random bits that are close to uniform and private.
On the Problem of Local Randomness in Privacy Amplification with an Active Adversary
Therefore we can apply the strong seeded extractor to Y3 and R, and the above analysis about Bob obtaining private random bits still holds.
On the Problem of Local Randomness in Privacy Amplification with an Active Adversary
Thus at the end of the protocol Alice and Bob end up with nearly private and uniform random bits, while their shared secret W still has a lot of entropy left.
On the Problem of Local Randomness in Privacy Amplification with an Active Adversary
Here we give a protocol for Alice and Bob to extract private local random bits.
On the Problem of Local Randomness in Privacy Amplification with an Active Adversary
We claim that Sx and Sy can now be treated as local private random bits of Alice and Bob.
On the Problem of Local Randomness in Privacy Amplification with an Active Adversary
Therefore Sy can be treated as local private random bits of Bob.
On the Problem of Local Randomness in Privacy Amplification with an Active Adversary
We introduce a protocol for private randomness expansion with untrusted devices which is designed to take as input an initially private random string and produce as output a longer private random string.
Private Randomness Expansion With Untrusted Devices
We also discuss extensions of our protocol designed to generate an arbitrarily long random string from a finite initially private random string.
Private Randomness Expansion With Untrusted Devices
Here we consider a different task, private randomness expansion.
Private Randomness Expansion With Untrusted Devices
We also propose using this protocol within an extended one to allow an initial private random string to generate an arbitrarily long private random output string.
Private Randomness Expansion With Untrusted Devices
Without private random inputs, Eve knows Bob’s entire protocol.
Private Randomness Expansion With Untrusted Devices
Clearly, Bob cannot generate any private random data in this scenario.
Private Randomness Expansion With Untrusted Devices
We thus assume that Bob begins with a private random string, and is interested in generating a longer one, i.e. in private randomness expansion.
Private Randomness Expansion With Untrusted Devices
Our intuition is that, conversely, in suitable protocols, Bell tests make private randomness expansion possible.
