On behalf of the VIFF Development Team, I am happy to announce the
release of VIFF version 0.6:


Changes since VIFF 0.5:

  The average time for a secure comparison was reduced by 60-70%.
  Comparisons now work with an actively secure multiplication protocol.
  A memory leak was fixed. Converted documentation to new Sphinx format,
  please see:

About VIFF:

  Virtual Ideal Functionality Framework is a framework for creating
  efficient and secure multi-party computations (SMPC). Players, who do
  not trust each other, participate in a joint computation based on
  their private inputs. The computation is done using a cryptographic
  protocol which allows them to obtain a correct answer without
  revealing their inputs -- even when some players try to cheat.
  Operations supported include addition, multiplication, and comparison,
  all with Shamir secret shared outputs.

VIFF (Virtual Ideal Functionality Framework) brings easy and efficient
SMPC (Secure Multi-Party Computation) to Python. See:
