  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

Examples of blinding in a Sentence

  1. 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. Blinding, like stoning, amputation and flogging, is a form of corporal punishment prohibited by international law. Such punishments should not be carried out under any circumstances.

  2. Gonzalo Luchetti:

    We are not the only ones to see the blinding insight that customers are spending more time on their phones whether in payment, ride sharing or chat ecosystems, but it is all about how you execute a partnership, thirty years ago, if you wanted to be relevant to clients, you needed to have as many branches as you could. Today ... people spend hours every day in these virtual cities, and the equivalent of having a branch in every corner is being able to provide your services within these digital ecosystems.

  3. Art Hushen:

    We forget that good lighting can bring people to a space, help them take ownership of it, use it, the police don't have to be there, and the space is luminated and you can notify police if they're needed, neighborhood lights are 5,000( lumens), flashlights are 250, 300. Those are still bright, blinding in your face, that's 250 lumens. Six-hundred thousand, that's like hundreds of those flashlights turning on your face at the same time.

  4. KC7:

    Blinding one self with hopeless hope.

  5. Dan Kelly:

    ($13 million) in a matter of hours is nothing short of blinding, the use of loopholes in the bank's procedures makes sense, but trying to rustle up a mule network in one country without making too much noise can't be easy.
