150 poeple from all over the world attends TPMPC conference

This week, 150 researchers, students and experts within the field of MPC Technology visit the Department for the annual ‘Theory and Practice of Multiparty Computation 2018’ conference, where leading researchers will present their latest results in secure computation.

The TPMPC workshops bring together people in both theory and practice of the field, and we are convinced that this will prove very productive and in our experience this is crucial for the advancement of our research, says Associate Professor Claudio Orlandi, who hosts the conference at Aarhus University.

Secure Multiparty Computation is a powerful cryptographic notion that - in theory - can solve virtually any cryptographic protocol problem. In recent years, the technology has been used in practice and holds great promise for future applications. MPC technology can be used to implement, for instance, voting, auctions, procurement and benchmarking with better security, in particular without anyone having to reveal his private data to anyone else.
