Elette Boyle (IDC)

Title: Is there an Oblivious RAM Lower Bound?

An Oblivious RAM (ORAM), introduced by Goldreich and Ostrovsky (JACM 1996), is
a (probabilistic) RAM that hides its access pattern, i.e. for every input the
observed locations accessed are similarly distributed. Great progress has been
made in recent years in minimizing the overhead of ORAM constructions, with
the goal of obtaining the smallest overhead possible.
