distributed computing addresses the problem of performing a computation with
a number of mutually distrustful participants, in such a way that each of
the participants has only limited access to the information needed for doing
the computation. In the presence of a third party, completely trusted by all
participants the problem is trivially solvable. However, this assumption is
in many applications non-realistic.
