Using TopGear in Overdrive: A more efficient ZKPoK for SPDZ

Authors: Carsten Baum, Daniele Cozzo, Nigel P. Smart


The HighGear protocol (Eurocrypt 2018) is the fastest currently known approach to preprocessing for the SPDZ Multi-Party Computation scheme. Its backbone is formed by an Ideal Lattice-based Somewhat Homomorphic Encryption Scheme and accompanying Zero-Knowledge proofs. Unfortunately, due to certain characteristics of HighGear such current implementations use far too low security parameters in a number of places. This is mainly due to memory and bandwidth consumption constraints. In this work we present a new approach to the ZKPoKs as introduced in the HighGear work. We rigorously formalize their approach and show how to improve upon it using a different proof strategy. This allows us to increase the security of the underlying protocols, all while maintaining roughly the same performance in terms of memory and bandwidth consumption.
