Private DB: Big-size searching from (many) small-size MPC instances

Vlad Kolesnikov

In this talk, I will briefly discuss Blind Seer, a private database system, at whose core is secure evaluation of many small-size MPC instances. I briefly discuss the Blind Seer approach. I will spend most of the time discussing related and supporting topics, such as: relevant security models and trade offs, improving performance of corresponding MPC instances, and Blind Seer relationship to SSE (symmetric searchable encryption).
