Secure Multiparty Computation (SMC) allows parties to know the result of cooperative computation while preserving privacy of individual data. Secure sum computation is an important application of SMC. In the proposed protocols parties are allowed to compute the sum while keeping their individual data secret with increased computation complexity for hacking individual data. In this paper the data of individual party is broken into a fixed number of segments. For increasing the complexity the authors have used the randomization technique with segmentation.
