## Abstract

We present a round-efficient black-box construction of a general multi-party computation (MPC) protocol that satisfies composability in the plain model. The security of our protocol is proven in the angel-based UC framework [Prabhakaran and Sahai, STOC’04] under the minimal assumption of the existence of semi-honest oblivious transfer protocols. The round complexity of our protocol is \(\max (\widetilde{O}(\log ^2n), O(R_{{{{\mathsf {O}}}{{\mathsf {T}}}}}))\) when the round complexity of the underlying oblivious transfer protocol is \(R_{{{{\mathsf {O}}}{{\mathsf {T}}}}}\). Since constant-round semi-honest oblivious transfer protocols can be constructed under standard assumptions (such as the existence of enhanced trapdoor permutations), our result gives a \(\widetilde{O}(\log ^2n)\)-round protocol under these assumptions. Previously, only an \(O(\max (n^{\epsilon }, R_{{{{\mathsf {O}}}{{\mathsf {T}}}}}))\)-round protocol was shown, where \(\epsilon >0\) is an arbitrary constant. We obtain our MPC protocol by constructing a \(\widetilde{O}(\log ^2n)\)-round CCA-secure commitment scheme in a black-box way under the assumption of the existence of one-way functions.
