Abstract : This paper defines the problem of Scalable Secure Computing in a Social network: we call it the S3 problem. In short, nodes, directly reflecting on associated users, need to compute a function f: V->U of their inputs in a set of constant size, in a scalable and secure way. Scalability means that the message and computational complexity of the distributed computation is at most Osqrtn polylogn. Security encompasses 1 accuracy and 2 privacy: accuracy holds when the distance from the output to the ideal result is negligible with respect to the maximum distance between any two possible results; privacy is characterized by how the information disclosed by the computation helps faulty nodes infer inputs of non-faulty nodes. We present AG-S3, a protocol that S3-computes a class of aggregation functions, that is that can be expressed as a commutative monoid operation on U: fx1,

.,xn = x1+

.+xn, assuming the number of faulty participants is at most sqrtn-logn. Key to our protocol is a dedicated overlay structure that enables secret sharing and distributed verifications which leverage the social aspect of the network: nodes care about their reputation and do not want to be tagged as misbehaving.
