I'm trying to do some basic benchmarks with different number of players.
A few questions:
1. Why have VIFF defined the threshold t to be the number of corrupt
players, while the classical literature defines it as "t participants
can reconstruct the message"?
2. Say I create the config files this way:
python generate-config-files.py -n 5 -t 2 localhost:9001 localhost:9002
localhost:9003 localhost:9004 localhost:9005
Would this indicate that the polynomial is quadratic (of degree 2) and
that 3 players in theory could reconstruct some secret?
3. Assume three of these five players provide input, while the last two
players do not. Will all players still participate in the actual
computation, or are the last two just passive spectators and receives
only the output?
