Song, Wagner and Perrig have published a theoretical paper about keyword search on encrypted textual data. We describe a prototype implementing their theory. Tests are carried out with this prototype to analyse efficiency and timing aspects. As expected encryption and search times are linear in the size of the database. More interestingly they also depend on the parameters used in the protocol.
