Federated Learning was designed to allow collaborative learning without revealing raw data as worries about machine learning privacy grew. Vertical Federated Learning (VFL) may be utilized for a distributed dataset with the same sample ID space but differs in feature space. And may be used in a wide variety of real-world contexts when parties have the same set of samples but only have partial attributes. Achieving privacy will be a result of this technique's capacity.

Federated Learning enables different repositories of data to learn a shared model collaboratively and at the same time keep the privacy of each one because of the increasing awareness of large firms compromising on data security and user privacy. To accomplish federated learning, three learning ways were suggested; horizontal federated learning, vertical federated learning, and transfer federated learning.

Vertical federated learning was adopted when data were spread among different parties. However, each one has different features from the others for identical objects. This paper is related to this type of federated learning.

To maximize model performance while maintaining the privacy of dispersed data, we'll create a framework based on vertical federated learning and suitable techniques.
