PPContactTracing: A Privacy-Preserving Contact Tracing Protocol for COVID-19 Pandemic

Several contact tracing solutions have been proposed and implemented all around the globe to combat the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

It is based on the private set intersection (PSI) protocol and utilizes the homomorphic properties to preserve the privacy at the individual level. A hierarchical model for the representation of landscapes and rate-limiting factor on the number of queries have been adopted to maintain the efficiency of the protocol.
