Data Aggregation Without Secure Channel: How to Evaluate a Multivariate Polynomial Securely
Source: Illinois Institute of Technology
Much research has been conducted to securely outsource multiple parties' data aggregation to an untrusted aggregator without disclosing each individual's privately owned data, or to enable multiple parties to jointly aggregate their data while preserving privacy. However, those works either require secure pair-wise communication channels or suffer from high complexity. In this paper, the authors consider how an external aggregator or multiple parties can learn some algebraic statistics (e.g., sum, product) over participants' privately owned data while preserving the data privacy.
