Research content

In the Internet, there are many kinds of users, for example, selfish users, malicious users, incorrect behavior users, and so on. With such many kinds of users, how we can use the Internet and obtain correct results with keeping our privacy? We are conducting research to solve this problem.
We design secure algorithms that can solve various multi-party problems without revealing unnecessary information to each party using cryptography. We design fair algorithms when there are selfish players using game theory. We design fault-tolerant distributed algorithms using algorithm theory.
