In an era of heightened concerns over data privacy, what more can be done to protect sensitive, confidential data?
One answer may be the emerging cryptographic technology known as secure multiparty computation, which allows parties to combine datasets and compute values of interest without exposing the underlying data. While this has been a theoretical concept for several decades, in recent years the approach has been increasingly used in real-world settings. Join New America’s Open Technology Institute and the Bipartisan Policy Center for an informative discussion on the potential applications and benefits of secure multiparty computation.
