Abstract: We study the problem of finding efficiently computable non-degenerate multilinear maps from (G_1)^n to G_2, where G_1 and G_2 are groups of the same prime order, and where computing discrete logarithms in G_1 is hard. We present several applications to cryptography, explore directions for building such maps, and give some reasons to believe that finding examples with n > 2 may be difficult.
