A Distributed k-Secure Sum Protocol for Secure Multi-Party Computations

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Secure sum computation of private data inputs is an interesting example of Secure Multiparty Computation (SMC) which has attracted many researchers to devise secure protocols with lower probability of data leakage. In this paper, the authors provide a novel protocol to compute the sum of individual data inputs with zero probability of data leakage when two neighbor parties collude to know the data of a middle party. They break the data block of each party into number of segments and redistribute the segments among parties before the computation. These entire steps create a scenario in which it becomes impossible for semi honest parties to know the private data of some other party.
