**Abstract:**

We consider the problem of protecting general computations against constant-rate random leakage. That is, the computation is performed by a randomized boolean circuit that maps a randomly encoded input to a randomly encoded output, such that even if the value of every wire is independently leaked with some constant probability p > 0, the leakage reveals essentially nothing about the input. In this work we provide a conceptually simple, modular approach for solving the above problem, providing a simpler and self-contained alternative to previous constructions of Ajtai (STOC 2011) and Andrychowicz et al.\ (Eurocrypt 2016). We also obtain several extensions and generalizations of this result. In particular, we show that for every leakage probability p<1, there is a finite basis \mathbb{B} such that leakage-resilient computation with leakage probability p can be realized using circuits over the basis \mathbb{B}. We obtain similar positive results for the stronger notion of leakage tolerance, where the input is not encoded, but the leakage from the entire computation can be simulated given random p'-leakage of input values alone, for any p<p'<1. Finally, we complement this by a negative result, showing that for every basis \mathbb{B} there is some leakage probability p<1 such that for any p'<1, leakage tolerance as above cannot be achieved in general.
