We study the black-box complexity of non-malleable encryption and statistically hiding commitments. We present a black-box construction of a non-malleable encryption scheme from any semantically secure one, and a lower bound on the round complexity of a class of black-box constructions of statistically hiding commitments from one-way permutations.
