Basic Unit of Computation
I've been thinking about homomorphic encryption lately, and one interesting application of it is secure cloud computation.
Fully Homomorphic Encryption allows for arbitrary transformations to be applied to encrypted data. For example:
foo = encrypt(7) bar = encrypt(6) baz = foo + bar print(decrypt(baz)) # prints '13'
An adventure awaits...
If it's been a long day, there's nothing wrong with giving up and going home.
