This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Practice and Theory in Public-Key Cryptography, PKC 2013, held in Nara, Japan, in February/March 2013. The 28 papers presented together with 2 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers are organized in the following topical sections: homomorphic encryption, primitives, functional encryption/signatures, RSA, IBE and IPE, key exchange, signature schemes, encryption, and protocols.This construction has been later generalized by Catalano et al. so as to work with q-ary trees instead of binary ones [10, 11] in order to obtain more efficient ... Thus, even if vector commitments reveal q in the clear, this does not compromise the security of ZK-EDBs. ... Let TMC = (KeyGen, HCom, HOpen, HVer, SCom, SOpen, SVer, Fake, HEquiv, SEquiv) be a trapdoor mercurial commitment and VC = (VC.
