Neural networks have become increasingly important in areas such as medical diagnosis, bio-informatics, intrusion detection, and homeland security. In most of these applications, one major issue is preserving privacy of individualpsilas private information and sensitive data. In this paper, we propose two secure protocols for perceptron learning algorithm when input data is horizontally and vertically partitioned among the parties. These protocols can be applied in both linearly separable and non-separable datasets, while not only data belonging to each party remains private, but the final learning model is also securely shared among those parties. Parties then can jointly and securely apply the constructed model to predict the output corresponding to their target data. Also, these protocols can be used incrementally, i.e. they process new coming data, adjusting the previously constructed network.
