IBM has released a new fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) test platform for enterprises. It is the first step in bringing the in-transit encrypted data analysis inside the commercial sector. IBM Security Homomorphic Encryption Services, the new FHE solution, will enable users to experiment with the ways in which the tech can be deployed to improve the privacy of the existing IT products, data, and architecture.
Experts consider FHE as a Holy Grail of encryption as this form allows data to remain encrypted while being processed. IBM and others in research community have been working to develop homomorphic encryption solutions for more than 10 years.
