### Share Conversion between Different Finite Fields

Let us have any linear secret sharing scheme (LSSS) that works on some field $Z_{p}$, where p is some prime or a power of a prime e.g., Shamir Secret Sharing, Additive secret Sharing. The problem at ...

### Distributed generation of random integers with prescribed sum

While reading this document I came across the following problem. Assume you have $n$ clients. The clients need to generate random integers in $\mathbb{Z}_p$, say $T_i$ for $i \in \{1, \ldots, n\}$, ...

### Multi-party computation with untrusted nodes?

Let $L = [b_1, \dots, b_k]$ be a list of blocks of a file. I want to compute the function $f = h(g(b_1), \dots, g(b_k))$ on $N$ untrusted nodes such that: Anyone can be reasonable convinced (with ...

### An MPC protocol from Elgamal is a good solution a homomorphic multiplication?

I want to compute a multiplication between many secret values and then distribute the result to everyone involved. For this, I thought about an MPC protocol built from Threshold Homomorphic Elgamal. ...

### Are there secure MPC schemes that support uneven load balancing between the parties?

In a scenario in which some of the parties have more data / compute power / trust reputation (or other meaningful properties) than other parties - are there known methods to do secure multiparty ...

### Is there any OPRF (oblibivious pseudo random random functions) between one receiver (1 input) and n senders (n inputs)? any references to read?

I am looking for some references for multi-party / distributed Oblivious pseudorandom Functions. I found two party OPRF protocols between a sender $S$ and a receiver $R$ for securely computing a ...

### Trade-offs for more parties in PICNIC multi-computation

In the PICNIC post-quantum signature scheme, a zero-knowledge proof of the secret key for a symmetric encryption is produced by implementing the encryption as a Yao garbled circuit of a three-party ...

### Authenticated sharing in MASCOT protocol

I am studying MASCOT protocol for multiparty computation and I am stuck in the comprehension of the authentication protocol $\Pi_{[[ \cdot ]]}$ and its security proof. Supposing the initialize phase ...

### Why should the smudge noise be used?

Consider a threshold FHE scheme based on RLWE like this: Refer to this paper $\textbf{Initialization:}$ Every party generates his own secret key $s_i$, then uses the common polynomial $a$ to generate ...

### Can we use a pseudorandom function in both models of a simulation based proof?

Assume in the real model a party blinds a fixed element $b$ as: $v_i=r_i\cdot b$, where $r_i$ is a output of pseudorandom function. So we give $v_i$ to a semi-honest adversary. Now we want to sketch ...

### Why do authors execute a leakage resilient election protocol inside a leak-free phase?

In the paper "Multiparty Computation Secure Against Continual Memory Leakage", on page 1241 (that's page 7 of the PDF) under section 2.3, the authors discuss "The Election Protocol" that they use to ...

### Can you clarify the proof that secure LR-two party protocols do not exist?

In the paper “Multiparty Computation Secure Against Continual Memory Leakage” on pg. 1237, the footnote #1 discuss why it is not possible to construct a leakage resilient two-party protocol. But I'm ...

### Does using a verifiable secret sharing scheme ensure robustness of a protocol if it is secure under the semi-honest adversarial model

Consider a protocol $\pi$ which uses a linear secret sharing scheme like that of Shamir secret sharing. Further assume that the protocol $\pi$ has been proven to be secure (correctness and privacy) ...

### Proving for a single input vs several inputs. Is there any difference?

I am working on a new protocol for pattern matching. While defining the ideal functionality, it is possible to say: Alice sends $p$ and Bob sends $T$ to the ideal functionality. i.e. searching for ...

### Why does a joint leakage MPC protocol not directly apply to a disjoint leakage requirement?

In the paper "Multiparty Computation Secure Against Continual Memory Leakage" on pg. 1239 the footnote at the bottom points out the difference between $joint$ leakage and $disjoint$ leakage. The ...
