Interesting. But pointless unless the organization takes a strategy that covers all the security bases -- not just one or two.

@lucian_armasu I could not find additional information on the "manual for homomorphic encryption for bioinformatics". The other stories I read were based on yours. Any pointers you can provide toward additional information? Thanks

If the encryption is now fast enough to handle in software that is interesting news indeed.
 


Can you elaborate on why a very specialized niche encryption like homomorphic encryption is pointless unless it covers all security bases? At one point HTTPS was considered an oddball niche also. Or perhaps I did not correctly understand your post.

@tsnor There's a source link at the top. I'm not sure if you saw that. On that page there's a PDF link in the top right corner. That's Microsoft's paper on it. There's also a link in it for the code, but it's not live yet.
