Complete Fairness in Multi-party Computation without an Honest Majority
Gordon et al. recently showed that certain (non-trivial) functions can be computed with complete fairness in the two-party setting. Motivated by their results, we initiate a study of complete fairness in the multi-party case and demonstrate the first completely-fair protocols for non-trivial functions in this setting. We also provide evidence that achieving fairness is “harder” in the multi-party setting, at least with regard to round complexity.
