I have hard time finding introductory book talking about details of secure multiple party computation. Is there any recommendations? Thanks for the help.

Hope this is not off topic.

  • $\begingroup$ I kind of know this is off topic, but I have hard time finding resources talking about details (algorithmic details rather than brief examples) about secure multiparty computation protocols like Yao's garbled circuit. Thanks for the understanding. $\endgroup$

The only book I know of regarding Secure Multiparty Computation is Secure Multiparty Computation and Secret Sharing by Ronald Cramer, Ivan Bjerre Damgård and Jesper Buus Nielsen. Yet, I could hardly classify it as introductory.

This is its official site.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you Aventinus. That is also the only book I found useful. I guess I will try my luck on paper search. $\endgroup$
