Guaranteed Slowdown, Generalized Encryption Scheme, and Function Sharing.

Yury Lifshits.


The goal of the paper is to construct mathematical abstractions of different aspects of real life software protection. We introduce three following notions: program slowdown, generalized encryption scheme and function sharing. These schemes allowed to discover new applications of such known ideas as trap-door functions and self-correcting programs.
