Secure Coded Multi-Party Computation for Massive Matrix Operations

08/12/2019 ∙ by Hanzaleh Akbari Nodehi, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we consider a secure multi-party computation problem (MPC), where the goal is to offload the computation of an arbitrary polynomial function of some massive private matrices to a network of workers. The workers are not reliable, some may collude to gain information about the input data. The system is initialized by sharing a (randomized) function of each input matrix to each server. Since the input matrices are massive, the size of each share is assumed to be at most 1/k fraction of the input matrix, for some k ∈N. The objective is to minimize the number of workers needed to perform the computation task correctly, such that even if an arbitrary subset of t-1 workers, for some t∈N, collude, they cannot gain any information about the input matrices. We propose a sharing scheme, called polynomial sharing, and show that it admits basic operations such as adding and multiplication of matrices, and transposing a matrix. By concatenating the procedures for basic operations, we show that any polynomial function of the input matrices can be calculated, subject to the problem constraints. We show that the proposed scheme can offer order-wise gain, in terms of number of workers needed, compared to the approaches formed by concatenation of job splitting and conventional MPC approaches.
