Private Bidding for Mobile Agents


A major security and privacy threat for Mobile Software Agents are Untrustworthy Environments; which are able to spy on the agents’ code and private data. By combining Multi-Party Computation with ElGamal publickey encryption system we are able to create a protocol capable of letting two agents have a private bidding within an Honest-but-Curious environment only with the help of an Oblivious Third Party. The Oblivious party is able to compare two encrypted inputs without being able to retrieve any information about the inputs.
