We discuss the widely increasing range of applications of a cryptographic technique called multiparty computation. For many decades, this was perceived to be of purely theoretical interest, but now it has started to find application in a number of use cases. We highlight in this paper a number of these, ranging from securing small high-value items such as cryptographic keys, through to securing an entire database.
