Abstract: We discuss the widely increasing range of applications of a cryptographic technique called Multi-Party Computation. For many decades this was perceived to be of purely theoretical interest, but now it has started to find application in a number of use cases. We highly in this paper a number of these, ranging from securing small high value items such as cryptographic keys, through to securing an entire database.
