Guessing Two Secrets with Small Queries

Daniele Micciancio and Nathan Segerlind
November 14, 2001

We present an adaptice strategy to recover two secrets from an adversary which uses linear size queries and is computationally efficient. To obtain an intersecting family containing the two n bit secrets, 4n+3 queries are made, and time O(n^2) and space O(n) are consumed.
