This site contains annotated bibliography entries of research papers in practical secure computation, with the goal of being a resource for new and old researchers interested in the topic. Initially, the site will focus on two-party computation using garbled circuits and cut-and-choose techniques. See this page for more information about this project.

Disclaimer: The current selection of papers is somewhat arbitrary, so do not use a paper's presence/absence on this site as any indicator of that paper's importance. The site is very much a work in progress, and writing bibliography entries is somewhat of a "spare time" activity for its maintainer! There are perhaps hundreds of great papers that are egregiously missing from the site and should be included. In the mean time, I would gladly accept corrections of factual errors, as well as contributed bibliography entries! Check out the guidelines for bibliography entries.
