It is my pleasure to announce the release of VIFF version 0.7.1:


This is a bugfix release -- the changes since version 0.7 are:

  A major bug was fixed in the passive multiplication protocol in the
  case where 2t + 1 != n. Unit tests were updated for Python 2.6.

About VIFF:

  Virtual Ideal Functionality Framework is a framework for creating
  efficient and secure multiparty computations (SMPC). Players, who do
  not trust each other, participate in a joint computation based on
  their private inputs. The computation is done using cryptographic
  protocols which allows them to obtain a correct answer without
  revealing their private inputs. 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:
