Privacy Tech-Know blog: Computing while blindfolded — Lifting the veil on homomorphic encryption
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has published a new Tech-Know blog post which continues our series on privacy-enhancing technologies. In a previous post, we discussed differential privacy and federated learning. In another, we analyzed the pros and cons of synthetic data. Here, we turn to a new topic: homomorphic encryption – a special form of encryption whose structure enables mathematical operations to be performed directly on encrypted data or “ciphertext,” without the need for prior decryption.
Find out more by reading our latest Privacy Tech-Know blog: Computing while blindfolded — Lifting the veil on homomorphic encryption.
