Distributed and Secure ML with Self-tallying Multi-party Aggregation

Yunhui Long, Tanmay Gangwani, Haris Mughees, Carl Gunter

Privacy preserving multi-party computation has many applications in areas such as medicine and online advertisements. In this work, we propose a framework for distributed, secure machine learning among untrusted individuals. The framework consists of two parts: a two-step training protocol based on homomorphic addition and a zero knowledge proof for data validity. By combining these two techniques, our framework provides privacy of per-user data, prevents against a malicious user contributing corrupted data to the shared pool, enables each user to self-compute the results of the algorithm without relying on external trusted third parties, and requires no private channels between groups of users. We show how different ML algorithms such as Latent Dirichlet Allocation, Naive Bayes, Decision Trees etc. fit our framework for distributed, secure computing.
