SSARES: Secure Searchable Automated Remote Email Storage

Adam Aviv has released an application for SSARES: Secure Searchable Automated Remote Email Storage, which uses the PBC library.

His code originally used PBC version 0.2.16, an ancient version of PBC. He recently converted to the latest version: 0.4.12. If anyone else needs to do this same, the main obstacles Adam reported are:

  • element_pow is now element_pow_mpz

  • element_from_hash has swapped the order of the last two parameters

  • pairing_apply is the current name for executing a pairing (without preprocessing)
