A Brief Overview of Private Set Intersection

April 19, 2021


Mike Rosulek - Oregon State University


Private set intersection (PSI) is a special case of multiparty computation, in which each party has a set of items and the goal is to learn the intersection of those sets while revealing nothing else about those sets. In this talk I will survey and summarize the state of the art for PSI protocol techniques. I will highlight several different categories of PSI techniques, each motivated through different, realistic application scenarios.
