Auctions, today, have become an important part of electronic commerce. With the gradually increasing importance of confidentiality and privacy in auction modeling, considering these two concepts, various designs have been proposed to ensure secure transmission especially in sealed-bid auctions. However, to the best of our knowledge, there has not been many approaches to the Treasury auctions. Looking at the current systems, many countries including Turkey perform Treasury auctions mostly manually. While it can be seen that there have been almost no problems in the processes and the procedures have been operated successfully so far, letting all the bids be transferred to the system in clear text and the operations being realized on clear text show that from a cryptographic point of view, con dentiality and privacy are not guaranteed and that therefore with the ongoing advances and developments in technology, this makes the system more vulnerable to such potential threats. On the other hand, since the knowledge of individual bids is of great value to the others who may use this knowledge to better their positions, it becomes crucial that the confidentiality of all submitted bids and privacy concerns of all the bidders should be satisfied. In a secure electronic auction system, from a cryptographic point of view, it is possible to determine the winner or the winners without revealing any private information. Within this scope, to accomplish this, in this thesis, we propose a new and efficient secure electronic auction model for Government Domestic Debt Securities (government bonds and treasury bills), satisfying both confidentiality and privacy, based on secure multi-party computation, secret sharing and threshold homomorphic cryptosystem. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study applied on issuing Government Domestic Debt Securities via electronic auction method.

A Secure and Efficient Protocol for Electronic Treasury Auctions

Auctions have become an important part of electronic commerce. Considering the gradually increasing importance of confidentiality and privacy in auction modeling, various designs have been proposed to ensure secure transmission especially in sealed-bid auctions. However, to the best of our knowledge there is no secure and privacy preserving Treasury Auction system. Looking at systems currently in use, many countries perform those auctions manually. Since all the bids are transferred to the system in clear f...
A study combinatorial auctions
Bilge, Betül; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Information Systems (2004)
By the emergence of electronic commerce and low transaction costs on the Internet, an interest in the design of new auction mechanisms has been arisen. Recently many researchers in computer science, economics, business, and game theory have presented many valuable studies on the subject of online auctions, and auctions theory. When faced from a computational perspective, combinatorial auctions are perhaps the most challenging ones. Combinatorial auctions, that is, auctions where bidders can bid on combinati...
An Evolutionary Algorithm for Finding Efficient Solutions in Multi-Attribute Auctions
Koksalan, Murat; Karakaya, Gülşah (2014-05-01)
There is a growing interest in electronic auctions. Many researchers consider a single-attribute, although auctions are multi-attribute in nature in practice. Addressing multiple attributes increases the difficulty of the problem substantially. We develop an evolutionary algorithm (EA) for multi-attribute multi-item reverse auctions. We try to generate the whole Pareto front using the EA. We also develop heuristic procedures to find several good initial solutions and insert those in the initial population o...
An interactive approach for Bi-attribute multi-item auctions
Karakaya, Gülşah (2016-10-01)
The advances in the technological infrastructure and in the Internet led electronic auctions to become popular. With online sites, people buy/sell inexpensive products/services through auctions. In this paper, we develop an interactive approach that provides aid to both the buyer and the bidders in a bi-attribute, multi-item auction environment. Our approach is applicable for both reverse and forward auctions. We test our approach for underlying linear preference functions of the buyer. We also adapt it as ...
Approaches for multi-attribute auctions
Karakaya, Gülşah; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2009)
There is a growing interest in electronic auctions in the literature. Many researchers work on the single attribute version of the problem. Multi-attribute version of the problem is more realistic. However, this brings a substantial difficulty in solving the problem. In order to overcome the computational difficulties, we develop an Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) for the case of multi-attribute multi-item reverse auctions. We generate the whole Pareto front using the EA. We also develop heuristic procedures to...
