Secure multilinear maps (mmaps) have been shown to have remarkable applications in cryptography, such as program obfuscation and multi-input functional encryption (MIFE). To date, there has been little evaluation of the performance of these applications. In this paper we initiate a systematic study of mmap-based constructions. We build a general framework, called 5Gen, to experiment with these applications. At the top layer we develop an optimizing compiler that takes in a high-level program and compiles it to an optimized matrix branching program needed for the applications we consider. Next, we optimize and experiment with several obfuscators and MIFE constructions and evaluate their performance. The 5Gen framework is modular and can easily accommodate new mmap constructions as well as new obfuscators and MIFE constructions. 5Gen is an open-source tool that can be used by other research groups to experiment with a variety of mmap-based constructions.
