"Keyless Fuzzy Search for Data-based Access Control"
Key management is always problematic in terms of privacy for remotely stored data in a de-centralized environment. To alleviate this issue, Ph.D. student Tianxin Tang proposes a concept called "keyless fuzzy search," where users can query an encrypted database, retrieve its parts and decrypt only some information "close to" the encrypted data. While strong security in such a keyless setting is impossible to achieve, this approach prohibits remote encrypted data from easily being massively harvested or mined, because guessing the right queries can be costly for attackers if the data has some entropy.
