(... to be written)


Homomorphic Secret Sharing was introduced during CRYPTO 2016 by Elette Boyle, Niv Gilboa, and Yuval Ishai [BGI16]. A lot of optimizations to HSS was shown in follow-up work [BGI17, BCGIO17]. A nice introduction to HSS can be found in [BGILT17].

An implementation of HSS can be found in [OrruHSS].
