IBM has released a Linux version of the fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) toolset, with the source code on GitHub and mIT licenses. The FHE toolset runs in a Linux docker container, using the IDE as a working development environment that can be accessed through the host system’s browser.
FHE allows specific algebraic operations on redaction to be performed to get the result of encryption, just as the same operations are performed on clear text sending the results encrypted.
This technology can be in encrypted data retrieval, comparison and other operations, the entire process does not need to decrypt the data. The same-state encryption technology fundamentally solves the problem of confidentiality when entrusting data and its operations to third parties.
Today’s files are usually encrypted during transmission and storage, decrypted when used, and have security vulnerabilities that FHE can resolve this issue.
