  1. Blinding

    In cryptography, blinding is a technique by which an agent can provide a service to a client in an encoded form without knowing either the real input or the real output. Blinding techniques also have applications to preventing side-channel attacks on encryption devices. More precisely, Alice has an input x and Oscar has a function f. Alice would like Oscar to compute y = f(x) for her without revealing either x or y to him. The reason for her wanting this might be that she doesn't know the function f or that she does not have the resources to compute it. Alice "blinds" the message by encoding it into some other input E(x); the encoding E must be a bijection on the input space of f, ideally a random permutation. Oscar gives her f, to which she applies a decoding D to obtain D = y. Of course, not all functions admit of blind computation. The most common application of blinding is the blind signature. In a blind signature protocol, the signer digitally signs a message without being able to learn its content. The OTP is an application of blinding to the secure communication problem, by its very nature. Alice would like to send a message to Bob secretly, however all of their communication can be read by Oscar. Therefore Alice sends the message after blinding it with a secret key or OTP that she shares with Bob. Bob reverses the blinding after receiving the message. In this example, the function f is the identity and E and D are both typically the XOR operation.eddeddd

  5. Amnesty International Iran researcher:

    This punishment exposes the utter brutality of Iran's justice system and underlines the Iranian authorities' shocking disregard for basic humanity, meting out cruel and inhuman retribution punishments is not justice.
