On Wednesday, Google rolled out the open-source availability of Private Join and Compute, a new type of secure multi-party computation that allows agencies and brands to share sensitive data without revealing information about individual customers. “Many important research, business, and social questions can be answered by combining data sets from independent parties where each party holds their own information about a set of shared identifiers (e.g. email addresses), some of which are common,” said the company in a security blog post. “But when you’re working with sensitive data, how can one party gain aggregated insights about the other party’s data without either of them learning any information about individuals in the datasets? That’s the exact challenge that Private Join and Compute helps solve.” Using this cryptographic protocol, two parties can encrypt their identifiers and associated data, and then join them. All identifiers remain fully encrypted throughout the process. Neither party ever reveals their raw data, but they can still answer the questions at hand using the output of the computation.

It’s helpful when sharing on-the-ground moments.”
