Multi-party Computation

MULTI-PARTY COMPUTATION


Multiparty computation allows a group of players to perform a given task as correctly and as privately as if a trusted third party has performed the computation on a players behalf. In fundamental papers by Goldreich, Micali and Wigderson [GMW87] and Ben-Or, Goldwasser and Wigderson [BGW88] it was shown that any probabilistic (polynomial-time) function can be securely computed in the computational and in the information-theoretic settings. Ever since, many papers have been produced and a lot of research is still going on in this fundamental area. In particular, the following issues are of critical importance: ability to compose secure protocols (e.g., sequential/parallel/concurrent reducibility), round and communication complexity, the network structure (e.g., existence of private channels, broadcast, limited connectivity), adversary structure that can be tolerated (e.g., thereshold adversaries), types of adversary (e.g., active/passive/fail, adaptive/non-adaptive) and some others.
