Electronic Protocols for Voting and Bidding Based on Secure Multi-Party Proof
A secure electronic protocol, which can be used for electronic voting and electronic bidding, is proposed. The protocol is based on a new cryptographical model called secure multi-party proof that allows any players and a verifier to securely compute a function in the following sense: each of the players learns nothing about other players’ input and nor any information about the value of , and the verifier obtains the value of and its validity but learns nothing about the input of any of the players. In this paper, we firstly define and construct a secure multi-party proof for any polynomial time function with semi-honest participants and verifier, then construct our secure electronic protocol.
