Searchable Encryption is an emerging cryptographic technique that enables searching capabilities over encrypted data on the cloud. In this paper, a novel searchable encryption scheme for the client-server architecture has been presented. The scheme exploits the properties of the modular inverse to generate a probabilistic trapdoor which facilitates the search over the secure inverted index table. We propose indistinguishability that is achieved by using the property of a probabilistic trapdoor. We design and implement a proof of concept prototype and test our scheme with a real dataset of files. We analyze the performance of our scheme against our claim of the scheme being light weight. The security analysis yields that our scheme assures a higher level of security as compared to other existing schemes.
