Traditional Linear Secret Sharing Scheme (LSSS) AND Nillion's Non Linear Operations

Traditional Linear Secret Sharing Schemes (LSSS): It’s a way to split a secret into pieces so that only certain combinations of those pieces can reveal the original secret.

Good for simple math: LSSS works well for adding or multiplying secret numbers without anyone actually knowing the numbers themselves.

The Catch: LSSS requires everyone involved to be online and communicating at the same time. This can be inconvenient in the real world :confused:

The Nillion’s Non Linear Operation: Nillion handles complex calculations on hidden information.

Non interactive computation: Pre processing is done in advance, so the actual computation doesn’t require parties to be online simultaneously. :wink:

Benefits: This eliminates the usual slowdown of parties having to talk to each other while calculating thus increasing speed and efficiency.
