My research interests are cryptography, computer security and privacy, in particular secure multi-party computation.
Privacy-Preserving Computation of Document Similarity
My advisor was Dr. Benny Pinkas.
The thesis introduces a design and an implementation of a secure protocol enabling two parties to check the similarity of documents without disclosing their contents. The thesis proposes protocols that handle the secure computation of Hamming distance over binary and arbitrary alphabets.
