Over the past decade bilinear maps have been used to build a large variety of cryptosystems. In parallel to new functionalities, the authors have also seen the emergence of many security assumptions. This leads to the general question of comparing two such assumptions. The researchers introduced the Uber assumption as an attempt to offer a general framework for security assessment. Their idea is to propose a generic security assumption that can be specialized to suit the needs of any proof of protocols involving bilinear pairing.
