With the increasing popularity of the cloud, clients outsource their data to clouds in order to take advantage of unlimited virtualized storage space and the low management cost. Such trend prompts the privately outsourcing computation, called Multiparty Cloud Computation (MCC): Given k clients storing their data in the cloud, how can they per-form the joint functionality by contributing their private data as inputs, and making use of cloud's powerful computation capability. Namely, the clients wish to outsource computation to the cloud together with their private data stored in the cloud, which naturally happens when the computation is involved with large datasets, e.g., to analyze malicious URLs.
