Homomorphic Encryption

Homomorphic encryption is a type of encryption that lets you do calculations on encrypted data without first decrypting it. The calculations are done in an encrypted form, and the results are the same as if you had done them on the unencrypted data. Homomorphic encryption can be used to keep your data private when you store or process it in a commercial cloud environment. Homomorphic encryption can be used to enable new services by removing privacy barriers inhibiting data sharing or increase security to existing services. For example, if you want to use predictive analytics in health care, it can be hard to do if you have privacy concerns about giving the data to a third party service provider. But if the predictive analytics service provider can work on encrypted data instead, these privacy concerns are diminished. Even if the service provider's system is compromised, the data would still be safe.

Homomorphic Encryption: Introduction And Use Cases

Homomorphic Encryption makes it possible to do computation while the data remains encrypted. Homomorphic encryption is encrypted using a public key and can only be decrypted by the respective private key. While the data is encrypted, operations can be performed on the data, which retains confidentiality, and helps organizations achieve...

What is Homomorphic Encryption? Benefits & Challenges [2022]

The increasing usage of cloud services and collaboration between companies to monetize data is raising concerns over data privacy. Regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) aim to protect the privacy of consumers, and businesses pay serious fines in case of non-compliance. This creates a tradeoff between data...
