We continue the study of constructing explicit extractors for independent

general weak random sources. The ultimate goal is to give a construction that matches what is given by the probabilistic method --- an extractor for two independent $n$-bit weak random sources with min-entropy as small as $\log n+O(1)$. Previously, the ...

In this paper we give improved constructions of several central objects in the literature of randomness extraction and tamper-resilient cryptography. Our main results are:

(1) An explicit seeded non-malleable extractor with error $\epsilon$ and seed length $d=O(\log n)+O(\log(1/\epsilon)\log \log (1/\epsilon))$, that supports min-entropy $k=\Omega(d)$ and outputs $\Omega(k)$ bits. Combined with ... more >>>
