IBM Debuts Advanced Encryption Service After Years of R&D

VentureBeat reports that FHE offers the ability to compute on data while it’s still encrypted, unlike classic forms of encryption that either protect data at rest or data in transit. IBM director of strategy and emerging technology Eric Maass stated that, “with FHE, the ability to actually keep the data encrypted and never exposing it during the computation process, this has been somewhat akin to a missing leg in a three-legged crypto stool.”

“IBM has been working on FHE for more than a decade, and we’re finally reaching an apex where we believe this is ready for clients to begin adopting in a more widespread manner,” Maass said, adding that the next challenge will be widespread adoption because there are “very few organizations here that have the skills and expertise to use FHE.”
