Secure 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. Over the past
two decades, a number of solutions requiring no trusted third party have been
developed using cryptographic techniques. The disadvantage of these cryptographic
solutions is the excessive communication overhead they incur.
