Project: Quantum Primitives for Privacy Preserving Data Mining

Acronym: QuantumMining
Main Objective:
QuantumMining project is going to pave the way on the development of a radically
new generation of cryptographic technologies, based on the realization of both highspeed
and secure quantum oblivious transfer (QOT) cryptographic primitive. QOT is
a basic cryptographic primitive which can be used to construct any secure multiparty
computation protocol, including privacy preserving data mining. We are going to design
and implement a QOT protocol over optical fibers, and we are going to integrate this
quantum primitive with a privacy preserving Genome data mining service. Privacy
preserving data mining cryptographic tools associated to genome databases can enable
a revolution in health care services, enabling personalized medicine, and helping on the
discovery of novel genome-phenome associations. However, this major breakthrough
has had limited impact due to the inefficiency of the privacy algorithms used for data
mining in very large Genome data sets.
