Common approach of machine learning is to generate a model by using huge amount of training data to predict the test data instances as accurate as possible. Nonetheless, concerns about data privacy are increasingly raised, but not always addressed. We present a secure protocol for obtaining a linear model relying on recently described technique called real number secret sharing. We take as our starting point the PAC Bayesian bounds and deduce a closed form for the model parameters which depends on the data and the prior from the PAC Bayesian bounds. To obtain the model parameters one need to solve a linear system. However, we consider the situation where several parties hold different data instances and they are not willing to give up the privacy of the data. Hence, we suggest to use real number secret sharing and multiparty computation to share the data and solve the linear regression in a secure way without violating the privacy of data. We suggest two methods; an inverse method and a Gaussian elimination method, and compare these methods at the end.
