IBM inventors have received a patent for a data encryption technique called “fully homomorphic encryption” that is expected to further data privacy and strengthen cloud computing security.
According to IBM, the new technique could enable deep and unrestricted analysis of encrypted information while preserving confidentiality. As a result, the solution could allow vendors to perform computations on client data, such as analyzing sales patterns, without exposing or revealing the original data.
