Abstract

An increasing number of individuals are turning to Direct-To-Consumer genetic testing to learn about their predisposition to diseases, traits, and/or ancestry. Direct-to-consumer companies like 23andme and Ancestry.com have started to offer popular ancestry and genealogy tests, with services allowing users to find unknown relatives and long-distant cousins. Naturally, access and possible dissemination of genetic data prompts serious privacy concerns, thus motivating the need to design efficient primitives supporting private genetic tests. In this paper, we present an effective protocol for privacy-preserving genetic relatedness test, enabling a cloud server to run relatedness tests on input an encrypted genetic database and a test facility’s encrypted genetic sample. We reduce the test to a data matching problem and perform it, “secretly”, using searchable encryption. Finally, performance evaluation for privacy-preserving hamming distance attests to the practicality of our proposals.
