Automatic Protocol Selection in Secure Two-Party Computations

The paper "Automatic Protocol Selection in Secure Two-Party Computations" was created by Florian Kerschbaum (SAP), Thomas Schneider (TUDA) and Axel Schröpfer (SAP) and has been accepted for publication at 12th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and Network Security (ACNS'14) in June 10-13, 2014. We would like to provide you a short insight:

Performance of secure computation is still often an obstacle to its practical adaption. There are different protocols for secure computation that compete for the best performance. In this paper we propose automatic protocol selection which selects a protocol for each operation resulting in a mix with the best performance so far. Based on an elaborate performance model, we propose an optimization algorithm and an efficient heuristic for this selection problem. We show that our mixed protocols achieve the best performance on a set of use cases. Furthermore, our results underpin that the selection problem is so complicated and large in size, that a programmer is unlikely to manually make the optimal selection. Our proposed algorithms nevertheless can be integrated into a compiler in order to yield the best (or near-optimal) performance.
