Thesis Defense: Srinivasan Raghuraman: Infrastructures for Secure Multiparty Computation Monday, November 25, 2019  10:00am to 11:15am Abstract: Motivated by the goal of improving the concrete efficiency of secure multiparty computation (MPC), we study the possibility of implementing an infrastructure for MPC. We consider the various (cryptographic) components of an infrastructure for MPC.
