The present invention relates to a method and a system of securely computing a measure of
similarity for at least two sets of data. A basic idea of the present invention is to securely
compare two sets of encrypted data to determine whether the two sets of data resemble
each other to a sufficient extent. If the measure of similarity complies with predetermined
criteria, the two sets of data from which the encrypted sets of data originate are considered to
be identical.
