Tóm tắt

The secure scalar product protocol is widely applied to solve practical problems such as privacy-preserving data mining, secure auction, secure electronic voting, privacy-preserving recommendation system, privacy-preserving statistical data analysis, etc.. In this paper, we propose an efficient multi-party secure computation protocol using Elliptic curve cryptography, which allows to compute the sum value of multi-scalar products without revealing about the input vectors. Moreover, theoretical and experimental analysis shows that the proposed method is more efficient than others in both computation and communication.
