Secure Multi-Party Computation

Established: June 10, 2011

It is often the case that mutually distrustful parties need to perform a joint computation but cannot afford to reveal their inputs to each other. This can occur, for example, during auctions, data mining, voting, negotiations and business analytics. Secure multi-party computation (MPC) allows a set of parties, each with a private input, to securely and jointly perform any computation over their inputs.
