Bachelor Thesis, Master Thesis
This thesis aims at investigating the impact of information leakage in secure computation protocols by designing and experimenting attacks on a leaky private kidney exchange protocol.
Privacy has become a crucial topic that nowadays is addressed in a wide range of domains outside of cryptography. It has been shown that such research proposing non-standard secure computation constructions can be seriously flawed, as fundamental impossibility results were not considered. This thesis aims at surveying the literature for such cases, identifying misuse of secure computation, and proposing specific attacks and, if possible, fixes.
