Description: Data breaches have remained relentless and the data sets leaked have steadily grown in size. The core reason is that attackers break into servers where the confidential data is available. The notion of secure computation promises to keep data encrypted and protected on servers at all times, even during data processing, so that it is not available to attackers who broke in. In this talk, I will survey my group’s research in making secure computation practical along two research thrusts: secure multi-party computation and hardware enclave execution. I will discuss the tradeoffs between these two approaches as well as describe a hybrid approach that promises to inherit some of the benefits of both. I will then discuss our open source platform, MC2 (Multi-party Confidential Computation), as well as its industrial adoption.
