A novel secure biomedical data aggregation using fully homomorphic encryption in WSN

Chethana G., Padmaja K. V.


A new method of secure data aggregation for decimal data having integer as well as fractional part using homomorphic encryption is described. The proposed homomorphic encryption provides addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and averaging operations in the cipher domain for both positive and negative numbers. The scheme uses integer matrices in finite field Zp as encryption and decryption keys. An embedded Digital signature along with data provides data integrity and authentication by signature verification at the receiving end. The proposed scheme is immune to chosen plaintext and chosen ciphertext attacks. In the case of homomorphic multiplication, the ciphertext expansion ratio grows linearly with the data size. The computational complexity of the proposed method for multiplication and division is relatively less by 22.87% compared to Brakerski and Vaikantanathan method when the size of the plaintext data is ten decimal digits.
