  1. blinding

    Blinding, in the context of research or experimentation, is a technique used to prevent research outcomes from being influenced by either the placebo effect or observer bias. It typically involves keeping certain information (like treatment allocation) hidden from the participants, data analysts, or both. Blinding can be single, double, or triple, each encompassing more people who are unaware of the subject’s treatment group. This method helps to increase the accuracy and reliability of the results.

  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
