The function privacy notion was proposed by the researchers in August 2013. It guarantees that the secret key reveals nothing to malicious adversary, beyond the unavoidable minimal information such as the length of cipher-text. They constructed a function private identity-based encryption that contains equality functionality. In this paper, the authors construct a new function private attribute-based encryption which supports more complex functionality. And they transform it to a searchable encryption. In searchable encryption, the trapdoor of searching keywords can be seen as the secret key. Hence, using this system can efficiently resist keyword guessing attack.
