Our efforts in PSI

We recently published an article shining light on private set intersection (PSI) and its use in the COVID-19 crisis. We are currently developing an open source library for PSI. You can find an overview for the PSI approacheswe follow with our libraries in the same article here.

What we bring to the table

You can expect a highly motivated team with experience in software engineering and cryptography, focused on delivering our PSI protocol into COVID-19 contact tracing apps out there.It is fun and fulfilling work at the forefront of having an impact on the current crisis by leveraging cutting edge cryptography technology.

The core library we will focus on for the future is our PSI cardinality approach, currently written in C++, which we want to wrap for other languages like Python and Javascript, for which we have expertise on the team, but also most for Go, where we are looking for support. You can find our library here.

One of our app partners, the ITO team (https://www.ito-app.org/), part of the TCN coalition like OpenMined and apheris AI (https://tcn-coalition.org/), want to adopt our PSI library, and so we need support to write a Go wrapper for our C++ library.

What you bring to the table

Ideally you have experience in using Go in conjunction with C++, i.e. with wrapping C/C++ code to use with Go. One way would be to wrap the C++ in C, and then use cgo to interface Go with C. Ideally you could bridge the gap between C++ and Go, but our team has some experience with C and so could also support here.

After this effort, there are multiple other avenues around Go and C/C++ integrations in the OpenMined universe we can point you at!
