## What is/are Integer Comparison?

Integer Comparison - Here, we improve and run a three-party integer comparison protocol (iICP) among the auctioneer and two bidders.^{[1]}Private integer comparison has been an essential computation function for many applications, including online auction, credential identification, data mining, and joint bidding.

^{[2]}19 times faster than the 32-bit integer comparison of Bourse et al.

^{[3]}37 bits/4D-symbol over uniform signaling using amplitude sequence length of 32, which may be implemented without multiplications, using integer comparison and addition operations only.

^{[4]}Secure integer comparison has been one of the first problems introduced in cryptography, both for its simplicity to describe and for its applications.

^{[5]}The language involved in de-contextualized integer comparisons poses challenges, as students may interpret “most” based on absolute values rather than on order.

^{[6]}Common for the overwhelming majority of privacy-preserving greater-than integer comparison schemes is that cryptographic computations are conducted in a bitwise manner.
