A fast mental poker protocol

In this paper, we present a fast and secure mental poker protocol. The basic structure is the same as Barnett & Smart's and Castellà-Roca's protocols but our encryption scheme is different. With this alternative encryption scheme, our shuffle is not only twice as fast, but it also has different security properties. As such, Barnett & Smart's and Castellà-Roca's security proof cannot be applied to our protocol directly. Nevertheless, our protocol is still provably secure under the DDH assumption. The only weak point of our protocol is that reshuffling a small subset of cards might take longer than Barnett & Smart's and Castellà-Roca's protocols. Therefore, our protocol is more suitable for card games such as bridge, most poker games, mahjong, hearts, or black jack, which do not require much partial reshuffling.

Keywords: Mental poker; DDH assumption
