Multi-Party Indirect Indexing and Applications

Matthew Franklin and Mark Gondree and Payman Mohassel

Abstract: We develop a new multi-party generalization of Naor-Nissim indirect indexing, making it possible for many participants to simulate a RAM machine with only poly-logarithmic blow-up. Our most efficient instantiation (built from length-flexible additively homomorphic public key encryption) improves the communication complexity of secure multi-party computation for a number of problems in the literature. Underlying our approach is a new multi-party variant of oblivious transfer which may be of independent interest.

Category / Keywords: communication complexity, oblivious RAM machine, privacy-preserving protocols, secure multiparty computation
